YOU'RE RIGHT, THOSE ARE PANTALETS JUST
PEEPING BENEATH GOWN
w
r BY BETTY BROWN
Yes, they are wearing them. Even,
the conservative, rather-shy-about-new-styles
girls are wearing panta
letted petticoats. You'll not see
them often on the street, but at aft
ernoon dances they are not uncom
mon, and before many'winter moons
have passed they will be common
enough with street gowns.
Mme. Alia Ripley, president of the
Fashion Art League of America and
an authority on conservative styles,
gives her sanction to the pantalet
gown and it was in her studio that
I sketched this "creation" of white
corduroy and ermine.
The coat is made hip-length and
a wide belt improves upon the sug
gestion of youthfulness a short coat
always gives. The skirt with its ex
aggerated flare is smocked in front
to a depth of eight inches, and there
is a pre'tty bit of smocking at either
side to form pouch-like pockets.
The turn-over collar and the wide
cuffs are trimmed with ermine. Not
even so this is a good design to study
for it promises to be a leader this
season.
