Lady 2: Original Pattern #3244
Embroidery Design: #10914
Publication Date: Sept. 1921

An irresistibly smart version of the one-piece slip over frock has a detachable vestee with a convertible collar. The use of the blouse body lining is optional. Twills, serge, tricotine, gabardine, homespun, checks, plaids, stripes, and wool jersey are smart, suitable materials to use for the dress and the vestee can be made of pongee, satin, organdy, eyelet embroidery, pique, and linen. The scroll-like all-over design is rich in effect. It works up simply in one stitch embroidery or bugle beads.

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