Circular
one of the many coeds who
makes her own clothes, Mary Hen-
dry, '58, finds needlework an in-
teresting hobby, as well as an in-
expensive method of acquiring an
attractive wardrobe.
An experienced hand with the
needle, Miss Hendry has been mak-
ing her own clothes since grade
school sewing class days.

With skirts, dresses, blouses and
formals to her credit, Miss Hendry
finds circular skirts the easiest to
make. She claims that anyone can
make this garment, which is a
special asset to the wardrobe of
tall girls, by following a few sim-
ple directions.
No Pattern Needed
"No pattern is needed," Miss
Hendry said. "I simply take three

yards of material and cut it in
half. Using a yard stick as radius,
I make a semi-circular are on
each half. I then make the radius
for the waist, half of what I want
the waist to measure. Next, I sew
the two pieces together, add a
waistband and put in a hem."
Miss Hendry explained that the
length of the skirt depends upon
what radius one uses. "I like my
skirts 33 inches long," she said,
"so I use a yard stick, leaving
three inches for the hem."
"The decoration is really what
makes the skirt," Miss Hendry
continued, pulling one out of her
closet. She showed how a felt
skirt can be dressed up with odd
pieces of felt, wool or sequins.
Cotton Skirts
Cotton skirts are easy to decor-
ate. Miss Hendry pointed out that
textile paint and india ink can be
used on the skirt to form any de-
sign the creator desires. Floral
patterned material simplifies the
need for further decorations.
One day is usually enough for
Miss Hendry to complete such a
skirt.
In making all types of clothing,
she stresses the importance of pa-
tience, a virtue which is essential
in any kind of handicraft.

Bermuda skirts will not replace
Bermuda shorts!
At least that's the consensus
among students questioned. A
number of women commented
that the new skirts are attractive,
but unsuited to general campus
wear.
Several women remarked that
"Bermuda skirts are flattering to
students, provided they have good
legs." Others objected, on the
grounds thdt there are a limited
number of places to wear them,
and that they confine the wearer's
activities.
Peggy Zuelch, '57, said, "They

ed that when Bermuda shorts first
appeared, students thought they
were ugly.
On the other side of the ledger,
Edith Heuple, '58, says bluntly,
"they are the ideal outfit for
freaks. Anyone who wears them
is crazy."
Students who do wear the new
style often get unsolicited com-
ments. One woman who wore a
Bermuda skirt to a fraternity par-
ty was asked whether she really
had anything on underneath. The
answer was, of course, shorts.
Only time. will tell whether or

Tulle and lace exemplify the
wedding dreams of most fair mai-
dens who want a formal wedding.
1955 is out to change that trend,
ushering in pure silks this spring
and fine cottons such as organdy
this summer. Even Dior's H-line
is edging into the bridal picture.
When coeds are selecting. the
gown, they should also consider
trains and veils. Bridal trains are
the exception these days, but when
worn, are over six feet in length.
headpiece.
If coeds are puzzled as to what
to wear, bridal themes exist for
every month in the year. White
pique is tops for June brides while
pink pique is recommended for
her bridesmaids. Pink wild roses
and blue larkspurs fit traditionally
into this picture.
White dimity is the fabric for
July's bride, who carries pink tea
roses; her bridesmaids don rose-
printed white dimity.

Organdy sets the trend for Aug-
ust. The bride wears white and her
bridesmaids are attired in green-
embroidered white organdy. Pale
pink glads provide a, picturesque
setting.
Short gowns in traditional white
and complimentary headdress of-
ten fulfill a maiden's wishes for an
informal wedding. However, many
prefer varying neutral shades or
pastel colors.
Equally appropriate are suits
with matching hats. Dresses with
matching Jackets are also being
shown this spring in gossamer
silks, chiffon and tissue wool.
Like the suits, these aresses are
practical, easy to pack, good. for
traveling and can be worn after
the wedding.
Whether it will be a formal or
informal wedding and the degree
of each depends on either the
bride, on family custom, or on
church tradition.
