Marth Dean 4681; ca. 1905; What a pleasure it is to fashion frocks for the young girl, and especially so when the garment Is of attractive design! The simple grace of youth seems made for dainty apparel, and every young girl should have frocks which are at least becoming. One of the prettiest of the new Eton suits Is shown here us a suggestion for the mother who makes her daughter's clothes, it consist of Eton coat and skirt. The coat has the broad youthful sailor collar and its edges finished with braid or a cut design of material In the same or a contrasting color. The sleeve is the neat leg o' mutton, stitched near the wrist edge. The skirt (Its smoothly about the top, closes in an inverted box plait in back and flares gracefully at the bottom. The Eton Is especially suitable to a girl, as It Is easily put on and off and defines the waist line. Any of the new fabrics may be used, serge, cheviot, voile, homespun or panama cloth, as well as linen or rajah. It is very simple to make, and the most inexperienced dressmaker need not hesitate to undertake it.
