content with summer purses of cre-

scarcity of leather.
To give the handbags body, the

Ballerina Skirts
E ASY-TO-MAKE ballerina skirts
are versatile supplements to
everyone's spring and summer war-
drobe. They can be either dressy or
sporty and offer many possibilities
for variations in design.
THE BEST way to have "different"
skirts is to make them. The
kind of material, color and pattern
used will determine when it may be
worn. Black and solid colored bal-
lerina skirts of jersey, rayon gabar-
dine or crepe set off crisp, fancy
summer blouses and together they
make a comfortable costume for cas-
ual affairs.
WILD PRINTS and stripes in cot-
tons and linens give a gypsy ef-
fect especially on the suntanned girl.
Variations on the gathered sport skirt

may be obtained with clever apli-
ques, side-ties and decorative pock-
RUFFLES add to the charm of
these skirts. A single ruffle run-
ning down each side of a peasant
skirt suggests a fancy apron. Tiny
ruffles sewed close together on the
pockets make the skirt look daintier.
A flounce or a ruffle on the hem
stiffens the edge and the skirt will
stand out more. Any size and num-
ber of ruffles may be employed on
hem and pocket edges to vary the
VERY unusual peasant styles are
fashioned from unbleached mus-
lin. Stamped designs are pressed
on the material or original ideas
drawn on waistband, hem and pocket
and when embroidered in bright,
clear colors. This same idea could
be worked on bright solid-colors such
as red, green or blue with white or
contrasting embroidery floss. These
original skirts are difficult to dupli-
