Notes For Now

Notes For Now.

Printed cotton evening and dinner dresses have natural waist lines, sashes, full skirts, draped bodices, leg o’ mutton sleeves and neat collars, or are very decollete, clipped or tied on the shoulders.

Swagger camel coats appear in a variety of colours.

Girlish but extremely smart are short day frocks of chiffon or tulle with gauged waist and neck-lines, and very full skirts.

Metal incrustations add glamour to otherwise simple day frocks.

The bolero suit is a background for an elaborate blouse of muslin and lace. The bolero adds huge sleeves for evenings.

Hats are veiled for town occasions.

An edge-to-edge coat has edges and pockets (six of them) outlined with matching braid.

Net applique decorates the yoke and sleeves of a tea-frock.

Many changes are rung on mauve, blue and cyclamen, which are also much used with black.
