A few pretty novelties.

Premet has made a black velvet dress with an edging of paste diamond lace. Philippe et Gaston put large diamond squares on white Georgine crepe, each stone being set in the material like a jewel in gold or platinum. One of the latest novelties consists of large velvet or silk flowers cut out and let into the waistband or along the décolleté or the edge of the dress.

Two creations by premet. Chouquette. — Black moire dress; Jade-green waistcoat with gold embroidery. Babiole. — Royal blue satin crepe dress with large rose effects in black velvet.

Some pretty effects are obtained by using satin-crepes wrong side out on the same dress, the skinny parts alternating with the dull. Strips of crepe set both ways on a jersey dress are also very effective, and puzzling to those who do not know how it is done. But I should never come to an end if I tried to give a complete list of all the attractive novelties that are waiting for us, ready to make us prettier to-day than we were yesterday but not quite so pretty as we shall he to-morrow.
