GOWNS FOR SUMMER.

The Growing Popularity of Foulards, Ginghams and Dotted Muslins.

The foulard gowns to be sued for short excursions in midsummer are gray, brown or dark blue with black figures or strings, and are stylishly made up with a little Zouave jacket of cloth the color of the ground of the silk, its fronts turned over in fevers that are widely bound with black moire. The skirt is more fully draped on thehips than are wook skirts, but is quite straight in the back. The waist is tucked in yoke shape to be work with a black moire belt, and the full sleeves are also tucked at top and bottom.

Gingham gowns for midsummer excursions are made with a French wait and nearly straight skirt, and are liked with the new stripes of sateen introduced in darker colors than the ground of the gingham, and in stripes of irregular widths. Navy blue sateen stripes on gray-blue grounds make up well with a collar and cuffs of velvet, and three or four large velvet-covered buttons set each side of the gathers at the waist line of the front. The French waist shows no darts, but is gathered in front and back at the neck and waist over a fitted lining of this white silesia or sateen; it may be quite round, but is most often slightly pointed in back and front. The skirt is shirred at the top of the back, but is slightly draped on the hips, or else is laid in plaits that meet in front. Scotch flannels of wide or narrow stripes or crossbars are made just as ginghams are, and have bands of moire or of faille ribbon on the collar and sleeves instead of velvet.

Under-skirts for travelers are of mohair of light quality and clear gray color, made with one or two plaited flounces around the foot. Those who prefer washing fabrics use the striped seersucker, or else cotten Cheviots in clean blue and white or gray shades. Silk petticoats are in gerat favor for all occasions, and are made of either glace silk or surah, with a flounce around the foot, and several flounces up the back bredth to the belt. Striped and changeable tafeta silks have been used, but the preference now is for solid-colored silk skirts - ecru, blue, gray - and above all for black silk petticoats, which are now worn under light-colored dresses. The flounces of glace silk skirts are pinked, and those of surah are sometimes edged with fish-net strips or with narrow point d'esprit lace.

Worth is reviving old-fashioned lawns and dotted muslins for dresses to be worn at garden parties during the "perfect days" of June, and for country wear throughout the summer. The grounds are cream white or lightly-tinted pink, blue or gray, with small, thick dots wrought all over them, and are strewn with sprays of flowers in natural colors, or with rose-vine stripes showing leaves and unblown buds. These are made up in quaint ways with a long over-skirt nearly covering the lower skirt, which has a foot trimming of a doublle ruffoloe drawn by a cord through the middle. The top of the over-skirt also has thick cords holding its fullness, the full belted waist has a corded yoke, and there are cords in points at the top of the full sleeves. A belt with flowing ribbons fastened on the left side or a surah sash knotted behind encircles the waist. The neck has turned-over plaiting of the lawn edged with Valenciennes lace, and this falls in a jabot down the front of the waist. To wear with these gowns are nearly flat hats, with brim of open lace-like straw and the crown covered by flowers and vines, usually rose-vines or ivy, with tendrils drooping at the back.

The Jamanese cottons introduced at Newport last year are again shown in grayish-blue figures and flowers on white grounds, making entire costumes - gown, hat and parasol - for Casino wear and for alo fresco entertainments. The modistes also import organdies and thicker French muslins with white grounds thickly strewn with tiny flowers - blue myosotis heliotropes, corn flowers, or carnations - and these are made with belted waists, tucked full sleeves, and single straight skirts, the seams of the waist joined by beading, and the neck fully trimmed with old-time Mechlin lace, crossing the lapped front on a frill that falls in jabot folds.. -- Harpers Bazar.
