Beneath the straight tunic there is a drop skirt, and a long body lining can be used. Canton crepe, crepe satin, crepe meteor, charmeuse, crepe de Chine, taffeta, and satin are smart alone or with the drop skirt in contrast; or you could use serge alone or with a drop skirt of satin. The large flower motifs make a charming trimming. This conventional design could be worked out in French-knot embroidery,combined with one-stitch.

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