Never was this remark truer than it is;
this season, when every style of face and
tage. For two years outlines of the human
form divine have been of the vaguest de-
description. Our clothes have been loose,,
not. to say floppy, our skirts of abnormal
length and fulness, and our millinery
ephereral to a degree. This year we are
showing a marked tendency to. "go back
to our figures," as an old lady recently ex

broidery or applique being used to define

on in shaped pieces, and a coat effect is

real coat would have on all figures. In the
meanwhile the over slight woman wears
a pleated lace coatee over a pleated chiffon
blouse, and knows herself to be every bit
as much in the fashion as her sister in the
fitting bodice.
Full or fitting, however, the dominant
year's Cup gowns is undoubtedly the
pelerine and its distant relation, the
cape, with ends reaching to the hem of
the skirt. It may be in any variety of
lace, silk, chiffon or net. It may be, and
very frequently is, more costly than the-
gown it adorns. It displayed on Tuesday
