Knit Dresses Popular
Forcibly impressed on the mind of
the fashion-minded person is the
advent and increasing popularity of
knit dresses and sweaters. The
chenille wool two-piece frocks in dark
colors have been selected by many
women because they necessitate no
care other than cleaning, and they
are positively the last word in smart-
ness. More fortunate indfviduals
blessed with a relative who loves
knitting are appearing decked out in
stunning angora sweaters, twin
sweater outfits, pert hats and boucle
suits. Incidentally, rushing meetings
are a good place to start a new
sweater fordyourself thissfall! There
is a sweater that can be made in a
very short time on huge big wooden
needles that make a beautiful, lacy
patterned blouse.
An excellent cross section of the
spectator sport kind of garb has been
perceived this week but the rushing
season and League and Union dances
will soon bring out the more elegant
and sophisticated side of the clothes
