By JEAN WHITNEY
SINCE war-time restrictions have
been lifted, designers have used
more material to better advantage
in dresses, especially formals.
Although the trend this year
is toward the bare-shouldered
evening gown, skirts are wider
and fuller. On the top of the
list of favorites is the strapless
formal. These may be had in a
variety of styles, colors and ma-
AMONG these are a white lace
dress with a cascaded bustle-
back, a white chiffon with a scar-
let lace basque top and gloves to
match, and a rustling, romantic
black rayon faille taffeta with a
skirt panniered to billowy fullness
and ruching around the strapless
In the 6ff-the-shoulder style
is a demure ball gown of checked
surah. The skirt is full with a
peplum effect and the dress is
accentuated by a decollete neck-
line. Another picturesque sum-
mer formal is of green and white
squared cotton over a hoop
)F THE other evening gowns
seen recently, one has a scroll
embroidered bodice with a fully
swirling net skirt over a rustly
taffeta underskirt. Another of
checked rayon taffeta features
narrow shoulder straps and a
bustle-back. The bodice of an at-
tractive black eyelet embroidered
cotton is accentuated with a tur-
quoise ribbon and bow.
A peach taffeta dress in the
< pre-war waltz gown style has a
wide skirt with a ruched taf-
feta peplum and large peach
colored roses, and a picture bod-
ice with a sweetheart neckline.
AMONG the more sophisticated
gowns is an exotic diamond
print crepe with a deep side slit
in the draped skirt. The dress is
strapless and has a scarf to match.
Another print crepe dinner dress
features a harem draped skirt and
a draped top wtih a wide square
neckline and tiny cap sleeves.
Materials run the gamut from
sheer tulles, marquisettes and
chiffon to handsome brocades and
velvets. Gleaming satin in unusual
shades of pewter, gun metal gray,
copper, deep plum and old gold is
also very popular.
Softer silhouettes which are
more flattering and feminine have
greater popularity this year. Bus-
tle-backs are unexaggerated and
arranged in deftly draped cas-
cades. The flare of skirts is man-
aged with cut, not excessive mate-
The Campus Casbah will not be
open this weekend, but the com-
mittee is planning a program of
entertainment for the final dances
of the semester to be held May 23
During the summer session the
Casbah will be open to individ-
ual men and women as well as to
couples, according to Carla Mul-
lendore, Casbah chairman.
