Chiffon Dyed Ombre
Ombre chiffon is another outstand-1
ing fabric. We were rather perplexed
when we heard of it, because we al-i
ways thought ombre was some sort ofj
a card game. But it isn't - at least
as far as formals are concerned --
it means material that is shaded allj
the way from the lightest to the dark-
est tints of a color. It's very unusual
in orange - with light tints of peach
at the hemline, shaded into deep or-
ange at the top. We saw this in two
styles - one, a very simple fitted
dress, and another made along Gre-
cian lines, with floating draperies,
and all the other effects that will
make you feel like Helen of Troy. j

are double-duty dresses, and we don't
have to tell you how useful they are.
Blue Is Popular
Blue is a popular color among
crepes. One blue dress was made of
quilted matelasse crepe, and featured
a finger-tip tailored jacket of the
same material. Another double duty
blue formal was made of crepe, with
a short jacket, featuring a high neck-
line, and triple rows of shirred cord-
ing around the neck and sleeves.
Last, but not least -are the lace
formals. We saw an extra-special
one made in chartreuse green, with
a shirtwaist jacket. A deep shade
of rose is used in another attractive
lace dress. Stand-up collars and
halter necklines are featured in these
