Lady 9: Original Pattern #3230
Publication Date: Sept. 1921

Paris never misses an opportunity to mark Russian outline with something unusual in trimming. This straight shoulder to hem line is particularly smart when combined with the high collar which promises to be very fashionable for the coming season. The dress can be worn softly bloused or it can be drawn down, and a long blouse body lining can be used. The skirt is straight and it is sewed to the waist at the low line. Dresses of this simple but new type can be made of crepe-back satin, Canton crepe, crepe de Chine, charmeuse, satin, velvet, twills, serge, or tricotine.

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