Lady 4: Original Pattern #3246
Publication Date: Sept. 1921

The center-front closing that reaches from collar to hem adds a note of distinction to the one-piece tailored dress. This front closing is very new and suggests many possibilities for simple button trimmings of various kinds. The fashionable high collar would be very smart with this type of dress and a blouse body lining can be used. Twills, tricotine, homespun, serge, checks, plaids, stripes, wool jersey, satin, charmeuse, taffeta, and velvet are the materials to use.

This dress is pretty for ladies 32" to 44" bust; it is also becoming to misses.
