Lady 1: Original Pattern #3228
Embroidery Design: #10917
Publication Date: Sept. 1921

The French sometimes make the redingote the same length as the slip beneath and at other times make it shorter. In either case it has the effect of a coat. The slip is two-pieced. Use twills tricotine, serge, homespun and check, plaid and striped wool alone or over satin. A satin,charmeuse and taffeta can be all of one color or of two contrasting colors. The conventional embroidery design makes a very effective spot of color. It is worked in satin-stitch in silk the shade of the tricotine redingote.

This dress is pretty for ladies 32" to 48" bust; it is also becoming to misses.
