TF YOU agree with Mark Twain
! A that "A woman is always better
dressed in fashion than out of it,”
| then you’ll gradually be remodeling
your last season's clothes to this
season's modes.
Fashion experts claim that it will
take at least two years for the aver­
age woman to replace her present
wardrobe with new clothes and the
•*new look.” This means that re­
making, remodeling and refurbish­
ing will be the order of the day for
some time to come.
Trot out the wardrobe problems in
your closet to see how they can be
handled. Imagination plus ingenu­
ity with needles and thread will do
For instance, take the short-skirt­
ed, short-waisted problem. What
better way to solve it than to cut the
dress apart at the waist. Insert a
wide strip of another nicely match­
ing or contrasting material and add
a matching band at the hem? The
wide midriff inset will delineate the
tiny waist while the bottom band
adds a graceful flare.

start in the dessert department.
You may like a delicious honey
almond cream cake with a delect­
able filling to put just the right end­
ing to the dinner; or, perhaps a
honey applesauce cake would be
Just the thing.
Maybe you'd even prefer an un­
usual variation of apple pie, or one
of the other pastries which haven't
been in the picture. You’ll find these
in today's column whether it's for
luncheon, dinner or just entertain­

If your closet holds many cottons,
these are easy to remodel as far
as lengthening goes. One of (he
favorite tricks is to use a four or
five-inch band of plain material and
add it to the bottom. For a charm­
ing effect, applique the print of the
dresa over the plain material. Then,
using a zlgzagger attachment on
your tewing machine, make sever­
al rowa of atitching, following the
irregularities in the print. Hem the
material in the usual fashion.
