New are the slips of combination brassieres and petticoats of all-over lace, like the one the artist has sketched. It is of pretty, strong shadow lace, threaded at the high waistline with a satin ribbon.
Ribbon work with long stitch-silk embroidery, and lace in which a portion of the design is overworked with colored silks, are among the new schemes calculated to make dainty "undies" daintier.
Perhaps of all silk materials the Japanese and crepe de chine are most desirable. There is a distinct reaction, however, toward fine cotton and linen fabrics again.
