The Costume Gallery Presents:
A Year in Fashion: 1921
Ladies' Dresses

Lady 11: Original Pattern #3257
Embroidery Design: #10893
Publication Date: Sept. 1921

For the woman who wants something different in this season of soft, long-waisted effects there is the fitted waist, the pointed outline of which emphasizes so prettily the fulness of the tunic beneath. The straight skirt and waist are joined at the normal line and the dress has a French body lining. Use Canton crepe, crepe meteor, crepe satin, crepe de Chine or taffeta. The large conventionalized flowers are arranged at the knee in a band-like trimming. The design can be applied or worked in satin-stitch combined with one-stitch.

This dress is smart for ladies 32 to 44 bust.
