duced by plaltings of white lace or chiffon

ets, military coats, separate jacket bodices,
tailor made boleros, stylish English cut
aways and irany shaped "Louis," there
will appear with both Lenten and Eoster
models very handsome costumes made
with wraps en suite.

for the spring and summer is already as
