20 Styles (Five as Illustrated), Tomorrow, at J.
A vast array of popular materials, Including:
Poplins, Plain and Striped Messalines, Eponge, Crepe Meteors, Pongees,
Charmeuse and Serges
in the most fashionable street snd evening shades. All sizes from 32 to 44, but not all sizes in every style: small
women can also be fitted.
Of Course, There's a Reason for an Amazing Sale Like This, and Here it Is:
One of New York's most prominent manufacturers had thousands of yards of high-clsss dress silks on order, which
on account of the Peterson silk strike, were delivered too late for his dress orders. He offered to turn all of these silks into
dresses in styles of our own selection, snd at a price-concession thst we could not resist.
This particular manufacturer really doesn't know how to make a commonplace dress, and he also leada each season
in the production of new and charming styles.
All in All, the Collection of Drentesls One of the Bent That We Haw Ever Had the Privilege of Offering Under Price
The trimmings are particularly lovely. Laces, embroideries, velvets and the new Bulgarian effects are largely used
In every detail the workmanship is beyond fault-finding. PLEASE COME EARLY -sale begins tomorrow moraine:.
