The dress illustrated combines a
demure cape which is detachable, and
a basic wool dress, blue in color,
topped with a spanking white collar.
The skirt is full over a buttoned

carrying out the distinctive simple
lines of the dress.
Another outfit in this series is a
yarn-dyed grey suit, cut very sim-
ply, and with a unique double collar,
like a coachman's. With a yoked back
and straight skirt, the lines are flat-
tering to the junior sized figure.
A wool crepe Jumper is also in-
cluded. With wide utilitarian pockets,
and straight outline stitching on the
seams, it is charming when worn
with a white jersey tutleneck blouse.
On another dress is the new 'cart-
ridge pleated' waist. This is a series
of gathers in the skirt, which stand
out giving added fullness and con-
tributing to the design of the frock.
