Fashion Notes

Fashion Notes.

Blue taffeta suit, coat featuring bouffant three-quarter sleeves and a big bow tied under the chin.

Navy blue taffeta again, lining the slightly flared hip-length coat of a neat grey costume. The blouse, of a charming fullness, also of taffeta.

A pleated lace jabot giving a feminine touch to a well-cut navy street frock.

Wide corded ribbon used to form a double collar, shirred at the neck line. Corded ribbon in two tones used as a belt. Another belt fastened with a single, large, artificial flower. A rich note struck by a belt fastening comprising a group of five near-gold pieces.

A wine frock surprisingly smart with a touch of pink inside the cowl neck and at wrists. A navy blue frock on the same lines accented with light blue “Sunburst” tucking on day frocks.

Linens trimmed with large buttons and rows upon rows of stitching at hem-lines, round capes, on cuffs.

The two-piece effect with a peplum for taffeta evening gowns.

Glamorous for evenings, a white satin tunic blouse, beaded, with bouffant three-quarter sleeves and a sash with ends trailing over a slim, slit, black-satin skirt. As an absolute contrast in type, the gown of buttercup yellow organdie over satin—large double collar, puff sleeves, bouffant skirt.

Dreamy frocks with trailing chiffon scarves—the blues and pinks, mauves and greens suggesting larkspur, lilac and pale foliage. Finely pleated ninons and georgettes for sleeves, for front panels from neck to hem, for whole frocks.
