Lady 10: Original Pattern #3248
Embroidery Design: #10806
Publication Date: Sept. 1921

A high collar, long draped body and full-length plain sleeve are the last word in smartness of Autumn street wear. This slender-lined model closes on the left shoulder and underneath the arm, and the straight skirt is finished with the waistline a little higher than normal. The use of the blouse body lining is optional. Twills, tricotine, serge, Canton crepe, crepe satin, crepe meteor, crepe de Chine, charmeuse, taffeta and velvet can be used. The large embroidered motifs are satin-stitch, outline or chain-stitch embroidery.

This dress is smart for ladies 32 to 44 bust.
