BETTY BROWN TELLS OF CORSETLESS FROCK "1
The girl who dances is dancing and
"trotting" and "dipping" this sum
mer without a corset
The newest dance frocks, whether
they are made of silk or organdy or
voile, are made on the classic lines
adapted to the corsetless figure. The
skirts are extra wide, and softly gath
ered just below the bust line and
most of the dance frocks swing nine
inches from the ground.
This is what a well known design
er told me as she showed me this
model of the new Greek dancing
gown.
Maize color charmeuse is used as a
foundation for white net, but the
feature that recommends it to the
dancer is the deep girdle or corset
of irridescent cloth a fabric that
may be bought now by the yard. This
falls free from the bust line leaving
the waist unconfined. The effect is
charming as the glistening girdle
flares from the waist as the dancer
"trots" or glides through the dance.
