New Zippered ]lobes Show
Tfil ored, Practical Lines
In Washable Fabrics
That indispensable uniform for.
college women's studying, spreads,
Sunday morning breakfasts, and
what not-the robe and slippers, of
course-is still commanding atten-
tion from the fashion world.
Robes are cut on the fitted house-
coat lines, for the most part, whether
the material is of flannel, velvet, silk
or satin. With a few exceptions, all
have a zipper of some contrastingf
shade running the full length of theI
robe to a short pleat at the bottom.I
The color isn't important so long as
it is bright and gay. Almost all!
of them can be safely laundered, a
fact well worth considering.
Coats Feature Gay Colors
Some of the gayest of housecoats
are of printed silk and challis, short
sleeved, and in any color combina-
tion you desire. Very startling and
smart are a black quilted satin robe
with bell sleeves, and a black taffeta?
with green satin stripe. One paisley
satin robe has a snow white ascot at
the throat, while a dark house coat,
embroidered with bright colors, is
further distinguished by the Dirndl
effect at the waist.
Some of the loveliest of robes are
made of chenille in turquoise, white,
rose, and the other pastel shades.
Many have vari-colored flowers of
self-material attached to the collars,
or appliqued on. Most of these come
with robe closing. The same com-{
pany makes bed jackets to match.
Probably the most elegant robe of all
comes in velvet with a train and a
monk's collar. This, too, is decorated
with many petaled flowers.
One of the newest bathrobes is
made of soft fleecy blanket material,
in pastel tones with the collar and,
wide belt edged in satin. This robe,
is big and roomy with a wide lap-,
