Lady 7: Original Pattern #3231
Publication Date: Sept. 1921

In this heavily fringed frock one discovers the way the French retain the youthful line by indulging their fondness for softness. The dress has both a front and back tunic and the drop skirt beneath is sewed to the waist at the fashionable low line. The dress can be worn either bloused or drawn down and the use of the blouse body lining is optional. Crepe-back satin, Canton crepe, charmeuse and taffeta can be used all in one color or in two colors. The dress can also be made of twills serge, tricotine, velvet, or checks. These latter materials could be combined with satin.

This dress is pretty for ladies 32" to 46" bust.
