Formals of Jersey
Rule Spring Scene
By LOIS IIULSER
In the spring a young woman's fancy turns to thoughts of formals
—this year it’s silhouette in jersey. Designers have begun to realize
that there’s something about a soldier, so it's braids and brass buttons
for spring term. An irresistible combination is a red, white and blue
silk jersey formal with a floor length cape of navy blue flannel. The
formal has a white short-sleeved blouse and a full-flared navy skirt
combined with a red girdle. The navy jacket with long sleeves and
white braid on the shoulders makes this dress the formal of the
term. me cape, nneu wun leu jci -
sey to match the sash on the dress,
has brass buttons on the shoulder.
You may not be the sophisticat
ed type, but you can still have jer
sey. It’s a white blouse again but
the high waistline is a broad band
that drops to a super-full peasant
print silk jersey dirndl.
If your idea of something
springy is a skirt that stands out
and rustles as you walk the new
white sharkskin models are made
to order for you. Tailored skirt
maker styles adapted for formal®
will be as popular as last year’s
sharkskin playsuits. Another mod
el is a white formal—formal with
a matching sharkskin jacket. A
girdle of red, green and yello\
brightens up the dress.
It just wouldn’t be spring if w
didn't have a new shade of blu
or pink. This year it’s platter blu<
Unlike most new colors this is
quiet tone which won’t screar
1941 if you should want to wea
it again next year. A good lookin
jersey is fashioned in this ne\
shade. It’s fitted lines fall int
fullness from the hips.
If your man loves to pivot a'
around the floor this number wit
a white jersey blouse and a fu!
silk printed skirt is just the dress

dress, but it’s yours for the press

“But, I mean wouldn't it be a

“Bugles and beans, widows and

“Would I look good in navy?”
Toad addressed the mirror.
“If you will remember,” Daphne
