The “all occasion” frock shown in the sketch owes its success to good designing. Incidentally it includes several fashion points of the season.
Sleeves? Some fulness at the shoulder line but not too much. Note the neat button finish at the cuffs. Neckline? High. Interest centres in the bodice, where buttoned closing hints at the simplicity of the shirt-waist, but clever fulness denies it. Bunched flowers at the throat give a touch of softness and colour which is reinforced by the twisted two-toned sash.
This style looks best in a heavy silk crepe. It will be equally successful for autumn in a light wool, with sash of velvet.
