Lady 12: Original Pattern #3263
Embroidery Design: #10914
Publication Date: Sept. 1921

A very charming bib line which carries out the apron effect of the front and back tunics distinguishes a simple Autumn frock. The straight skirt and tunics are sewed to the waist at the low waistline. A dress of this type can have a long body lining which can be finished in camisole style. Use crepe-back satin, Canton crepe, crepe meteor, crepe de Chine, charmeuse or taffeta alone or in two colors; or combine crepe-back satin, charmeuse, taffeta and velvet with lace, Georgette, silk voile or chiffon. The all-over design is made up of many circle-like motifs. They are worked in one-stitch embroidery which is very simple to do. Lower edge 54 inches.

This dress is smart for ladies 32 to 44 bust.
