Lady 3: Original Pattern #3238
Publication Date: Sept. 1921

This tailored street frock is an indispensable item in the Autumn wardrobe. The new long-bodied fashions are particularly smart because, though they are simple, they give an interesting turn to a familiar style. The new model has the unbroken panel line in the front and back in the long body, with a group of plaits below, at either side. The dress slips on over the head and it can have a blouse body lining. Use twills, tricotine, serge, homespun, satin, taffeta, crepe meteor or crepe de Chine. Tricotine can be combined with satin.

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