Photoplay’s pattern of the month
Doubly exciting is this two-in-one dress that also can be worn as a sleeveless dress with a scarf at the neckline. Jumper has stand-up collar, modified capel sleeves; blouse, an ascot tie at neck. Make it in Botany’s Baronette wool crepe—choice of 45 colors. You’ll like their “antique ivory,” a warm off-white which will be important this year.
