Article: Francine, Chronicle (author unknown). TO enter an elegant parlor, each of us takes care of her personal presentation. Because the world is a theater in which we play the roles. — To enter the parlor, it is to show oneself in its apotheosis. To make a success of the whole, we match as good as possible the kind of hat to the kind of dress, colors are studied, and the collar of the coat, a little raised behind, makes a background to your face. The long sleeve is coming back in great steps and it is presented in the most original forms. Sometimes plain and narrow, tight to the wrist where a serpentine fabric cuff, lined with a contrasting-colored silk falls gracefully on the back of the hand, other times this sleeve with extended shoulder is worked with a small cuff or in a lingerie cuff. The latest sleeve, tight to the wrist, then flares out into slit puff, lined with matching silk. The neckline is not very low cut and is decorated with a masculine collar, a silk rouching or a moving scarf that is draped in any way. The square necklines (the newest thing) are decorated with embroidery or braid. The silhouette of the afternoon dress is straight and simple despite the ruffles, pleats and aprons with which it is decorated. The most distinguished dress will always be the tubular shirt dress, whose high collar and long narrow sleeves will emphasize once again the slenderness to which it aspires. These shirt dresses are buttoned, either in front or on the side down to the bottom. The pilgrim collar has taken on new shapes. It is square and falls behind like a fichu to the belt. This kind of fichu is successfully adapted to the manufacture of checkered fabrics, whose checks are arranged in an original way. Round capes are always very graceful. Cut in several sizes they are superimposed on the bodice; then they are edged with braid or soutache, just like the scarves that persist in graciously trimming the afternoon dresses. Once this scarf is in plain marocain, it is then worn on a dress of dark wool and a clip maintains it on the left side. Another time this scarf is cut into shape, pleated, and passed through two incisions made to the dress. The long blouse is a very important acquisition of fall fashion. Whether belted or shirt-shaped, it is always made of soft fabric set with fur or embroidery and decorated with buttons. Buttons combined with a ribbon braid produce a very successful effect. We also see a lot of "smock" blouses combined with a border, especially on the dresses of marocain that we will wear to go to tea, either at the casino or with friends. — The mistress of the house who gives a tea party will wear the traditional "Teagown" for which charming models have just appeared: in brocaded silk, brocade, crepe, with flared sleeves in silk chiffon or lamé lace falling down to the hem. For the tea dances, our designers, always happy with new ideas, have just launched a few models full of grace and very juvenile. One of them is composed of a skirt in marocain cut in the shape of a picoted flounce. A half-length cape made of the same fabric and tied with a picot ribbon or a long scarf passing through the fur belt, complete this pretty dress. The other, of original composition is in gold lamé silk, the sleeves are long and the funnel-shaped pleats of the skirt are maintained by a bayadere belt. The shoulders and the front of the dress are decorated with a rich embroidery. The standard lace width, intersected with silk bias with a matching scarf, white chiffon pleats on a black satin sheath produce charming effects; or bangs of ostrich feathers "guinea fowl", speckled with white, attached to a black dress in marocain, white pearl embroidery on a silk sheath are worn in different colors. If the skirt and blouse vary in color, matching ribbon bows and bias will establish the union of fabrics. Scarves and bows are always, well, juvenile and dresses with colorful designs almost always call for them. The last kind of scarf is composed of small ribbons of reps joined together, whose tone harmonizes with the colors of the fabric. A delicious dress of young girl is in fabric with thousand flowers whose peplum or flounces are hemmed with a broad ribbon matched, set with a small fringe.
