Pajamas May Surprise You With Changes Shorty pajamas and dress- length nighties are ballerina-in spired this spring with a design of red dancing slippers imprinted on white cotton plisse. Perfect for summer snoozing are the shorty pajames, fashioned like rompers, with an elasticized waistband for perfect fit. For the gals who pre fer nighties, the designers have come up with a dress-length night gown in the red shoes pattern, with cinched waistline, butterfly sleeves and a fluffy-ruffle on the brief skirt. Either garment may appear at the breakfast table for morning coffee when topped with a match ing duster fashioned with demure sleeves puffed with bright red drawstring. Bright red piping trims collars and pockets. For a complete picture there is a pair of ballerina slippers of red quilted chintz and plisse, designed to fit any foot by means of a simple drawstring at the heel. Plisse for Playclothes In this day of no-iron fabrics and easy pacables, plisse is the cotton of the hour because it can be tubbed and dried in less than nothing. A fresh, dainty material, it is especially adaptable to lin gerie pretties. Pajamas have a new “little-girl” look this spring, in a two-piece model with plain white top and bloomer shorts, printed in a lace design. Ruffles of the lace-imprinted fabric trim the neckline of the topper. Scuffs of matching material are shown with the shorty pajama. Chosen colors are deep rose and blue. In the enchantment department are the beloved nylon tricot gowns. Newest addition to one line is a classic nylon gown in white with a yoke of tiny rhumba ruffles, eight of ’em, edged in bright red. The matching bed jacket—a ver sion of the hug-me-tight—has a ruff of ruffles for a yoke of flat tery. It’s available in new' shades of mint green, and “spring coral, trimmed in deeper tones of the color. Fine Irish linen is back in the blouse business this season, with a fresher-than-ever look. Most of the linen is imported but has been tebilized to be crease resistant. One model is designed with a heavy lace yoke extending into brief capsleeves and fastened with round pearl buttons. Pleats and a lattice yoke are featured in an other crisp, cool suit-blouse. LOOK UM SQUAW DRESS — This is what the squaw might say when she sees Miss Dorothy Collier in this sea son’s version of the squaw dress. Made of blue twistalene, which requires no ironing, the blouse and skirt may be worn separately. On the hanger is the black, one-piece model of the squaw dress. Collegiate shop. (lotions Get New Look In Summer Playclothes Californians Push Sharkskin This Year Every so often women start ask ing what has happened to gleam ing sharkskin, that used to be the fashion rave among beach beauties. Those who know the look and feel of sharkskin after it became popular in the 1930s aren’t likely to forget its sleek, pleat-sharp lines and smart appearance. Acetate sharkskin first attracted California designers, who liked its startling white texture against sun-tanned skins and helped it to top fashion popularity. Its success continued until the last war, when so many quality fabrics were curtailed. But now sharkskin has returned for prac tically every hour of the day. And once again it’s the Califor nia designers who are champion ing sharkskin. A cavalcade of sportswear fea turing both plain and striped sharkskin is being boomed by the Celanese Corporation of America for springs and summer wear. Sharkskin lends itself well to the costume look and often is shown in harmonizing coats and di'esses or in coats to be worn over dresses of other fabrics. It finds a firm place in not only town coats but long, loose beach coats and short, boxy jackets as well. Shirt-tail dresses place first this year in the sports line with three- piece playsuits returning to great favor. Printed skirts are bright with cabbage roses, watermelons, needlepoint designs and stylized vegetables. Playsuits and bathing suits have assumed the “bloomer girl” look. Shorts too have a romper appear ance and share honors with the “boxer” type. Terry cloth is fash ioned into shorts and playclothes. Most fabrics are the no-iron variety and colorfast. Ruffles appear on shoris, blouses, sun dresses, and swim suits. A feminine look has been built into swim suits with an hour-glass sil- Handbags Have Built-In Lights houette and matching, removable skirts of companion prints. Revival of a farmer fashion is the jack-straw skirt, now of per manently pleated cotton. To main tain the mushroom-pleated effect, twist after washing and slip into a nylon stocking for drying. No Deep Umbrella Is Newest Gadget It became perfectly obvious re cently that you can have every thing . . . especially in fashion. The immediate stimulus for this statement was the introduction of a “no-drip” umbrella. It has a small basin attached to the ferrule to catch rainwater before it hits the rug. Not that this is necessary, because you can have everything in home furnish ings too. Like a spot-repellent rug. OFF TO THE BEACH — is Mary Mackin in a navy twistalene sack cotton belt ed in at the waist. She’s wearing a white embossed cotton cap and carrying one of those big leather bags that can double as a b-each bag. Her sandles are of blue and white. Penny’s. Mothers who hate to sew name tapes on school and camp equip ment will welcome a new writing deyjce which writes indelibly on anything from cloth to rubber, comes in nine different colors. In addition to marking junior clothes it can be used for labeling home- canned fruits and vegetables, freezer packages, sports goods and toys. The unit writes with a flat nub, can’t spill. Among other new and interest ing styles, there are now hand bags with built-in lights for rum maging around. They also have bijilt-out lights that can be fo cused on keyholes when the hand bag carrier arrives home after twilight. There are numbers of alleged ly practical jewelry styles. Take the dice-cage earrings now . . . They have sweet little miniature ilice dangling in gold containers from the ears. A lady is always prepared should she and compan ions have a sudden urge for craps. The “travel-type bracelet” is a must for whimsical women who take quick, unexpected trips. It is linked all the way around with odd-shaped gold or silver-plated containers which hold lipsticks, powder boxes, tiny toothbrushes, and even, if needed, cigaret-sized folding razor’s. and stockings trim all day long!
