styles so that the skirts may be worn
with sheer sweaters or dimity blouses.
One such dress is of the shirt-waist
style with a row of tiny glass buttons
up the front. The skirt is simple with
kick pleats in both the front and
Cotton prints, while not as dressy
as the linens, are much more prac-
ticable because they do not wrinkle
so easily. The necklines of the sea-
son are low cut and come in a variety
of styles so that the girl with long,
thin features will not have to shy
clear of the square neck models.
