MISS READYMADE, WHAT YCU WILL WEAR
THIS SPRING COSTS $5 MORE
'lm MMr Wlwi vkJH

Just One Perfect "36" After Another
BY DEAN HALLIDAY
Miss Readymade, your $25 spring
suit is going to cost $5 more thiB
year.
And here's what you'll look like
for $30:
Your jacket and skirt will be short
so short you'll have trouble telling
one form the other.
And your 7-inch skirt is going to
flare at the bottom so full in fact
that you'd better be careful on breezy
days.
Your sleeves, by the way, will bell
out at the wrist the designers had
to do something with the material
saved on the jacket and skirt.
And the colors
"01 yoi!" exclaimed the delegates
at the convention of the National
Cloak, Suit and Skirt Manufacturers'
ass'n meeting in Cleveland. Har
dened style veterans they were, yet
it was a shock even to them.
Reseda green will predominate. It
can't be helped. It would subdue a
parrot.
High rose tints, delt blues, tango
tans and black and white zebra
stripes will be some of the other "sta
ples." They are all colors that nobody
Lhad the nerve to wear in former
years. But they're all the imported
dyes that are left in the country so
garment makers have to use them
now.
American dye merchants are mak
ing the other kind, and they're all
right unless you get caught in the
rain.
Perhaps you think your wife picks
out her own clothes. Well, she does
not It's done for her months before
by several hundred of the cloak and
suit manufacturers "style sleuths."
They decide just what she shall wear
and what she shall not, and this year
thpv are all "made in America"
styles.
