The making of flowers is an art but it is an art which can be acquired. A corsage of silk or velvet flowers may give the necessary touch to an afternoon or evening dress to make it distinctive. The woman who likes to express her individuality appreciates this. Fancy ribbon creations are suitable for bedroom decorations such as lamp or candle shades, pillows, bags, or fancy boxes. Pink satin or chiffon flowers are used with pleasing effect for caps of negligees. Sprays or bunches of flowers may be made to trim hats. They may be made of the same material as the hat, or contrasting. For the high school girl who is going to her first “dress up” party lovely bandeaux can easily be made.
