Lady 5: Original Pattern #3259
Publication Date: Sept. 1921

An out-of-the-ordinary variation of the long body line appears in this very smart street frock where the joining line of the straight lower part and body takes a deep scallop-like curve over each hip. This dress can be made over a blouse body lining. The vestee is a becoming, brightening touch and is very youthful when made with the flat collar and almost high neck. Use twills, serge, tricotines, checks, charmeuse, satin, or taffeta. Canton crepe can be combined with plaid or check wool or velvet, or satin or taffeta can be used with tricotine, serge or twills.

This dress is pretty for ladies 32" to 44" bust.
