what they want.

of a University associate profes-

Perhaps her specialties are
novel and colorful cocktail
skirts from silk, taffeta and felt.
These skirts usually feature
some design or aplique. All the
designs on these skirts are put
on by hand.
Quite frequently Mrs.-Nickerson
makes these designs from sequins
or embroiders them. Some of the
fanciest skirts, however, feature
stenciled designs from textile

WHILE SHE was teaching in a
private girls' high school, many of
the mothers expressed a desire for
something special and imagina-

desires, Mrs. Nickerson got the
idea to design something new and
