Popular Cottons Are Used To B est Advantage
By Designers in Distinctive, Demure Fashions



- --- i I

Jti'r '1.

The once-lowly cotton has become
a rarity, to be styled and handled
with the care formerly accorded to
silk, and is consequently priced
higher than formerly. But this scar-
city has also given cotton dresses a
new distinction and importance. No
longer are they just something to be
worn around the house or for active
sports. This year cotton dresses will
be seen everywhere. .
In spite of the difficulty of obtain-
ing cottons, Ann Arbor stores have,
a wonderful collection of new spring;
dresses. That old favorite, the classic
shirt maker, is being shown in the
traditional striped or checked seer-
sucker, waffle pique, and gingham.j
There are a few lovely silky 1
chambrays to be found, some se-
verely tailored, but others given a
new twvist with ruffles or scallops.i
One store has chambray in a greatt
variety of muted pastels, yellow,
pale pink, peach, a very soft blue,
delicate grey, and lavender, a rare
color in cottons.
Necklines are either very high or
very low, and one dress shows an
interesting combination of both, hav-
ing a high tie over a deeply slashed
V. Sleeves are getting briefer and
briefer. One dainty pastel chambray
with a demure high neckline has
only two rows of accordion-pleated
material substituting for sleeves. A
pannier effect is simulated by a dou-
ble row of this same pleating over
the hips.
Embroidery is used to give many
cottons a distinctly feminine cast.
An aqua chambray, very simply cut,
with tiny cap sleeves and a low
sweetheart reck, has as its only dec-
oration wide scrawls of striking black
The summer two-piecer, cut to
look like a suit, is still going strong.
Striped or checked pique is still
the most often-used fabric, but a

few very original ideas have been
used. One dress has a jacket of
bold pink-and-black checks and a
skirt of solid black, while another
has a jacket of a very subtle laven-
der-and-beige plaid and a solid
beige skirt. Another store shows an
entire suit in a positively upr oari-
out luchsia and black plaid.
For those who are tired of the
usual red-and-white or blue-and-
white, there are some interesting
new color combinations. Grey with
white is an important new trend,
shown either in prints, stripes, or
solid grey piped with white. Pink
with black is also becoming more
popular. One striking dress has a
solid black skirt and sleeves, while
the top is quartered in aqua and
black. American designers are dis-
covering what Paris has known for a
long time-that black and white is
ideal for summer wear, because it is
cool, slimming, and refreshing. One
store shiows a severely tailored black
jumper stitched with white. The
effect is as new as May, 1945.
Blue and a warm cocoa-brown are

being used together in plaids and
checks to give a pleasing effect. One
dress, definitely not for the shrink-
ing violet, used every color of the
ra:nbow at its maximum intensity in
a plaid shirtwaist with bows on the
Several designers have departed
radically from all tradition in their
summer offerings. A dress with a
perfectly plain black bodice and
cap sleeves has a skirt consisting
of eight scalloped panels in pink,
blue, yellow, and green. The same
store has what they call a "Grecian
effect" dress. It is in striped cotton
with a low rounded neckline. Long
ties attached above the diaphragm
wrap around the body, cross, and
tie molding the dress to the body.
Definitely a dress for figure flat-
Perhaps the most startling dress in
town is a shirtmaker in very thin,
very shiny glazed chintz. Its gigan-
tic yellow-and-black stripes are rath-
er reminiscent of a circus, and should
have an exhilarating effect on the
most depressed spirits.

THIS IS THE BRA thaf thousands of women have been waiting
for. It is demanded by purchasers of bare back play suits, loung-
ing suits, summer dresser and evening dresses.
The breast pocket is medium type, but we find many large
type who can wear it. The section under the bust is firm rayon
satin. The rest of the fabric is rayon faille. It has a deep V
separation in' front . . . a true "plunging neckline." The shoulder
straps are adjustable and six inches of elastic tape are inserted
where the halter hugs the back of the neck. This elastic tape will
not "string" or cut into the flesh. The back closing has six
inches of elastic and is adjustable.
