EVEN THE RAINBOW PALES BEFORE THE
GAUDY MIDSUMMER SWEATER
Aj3 I PrrTO r UTfJi k Yv v-.
JII I iS0r
Quite the gayest thing that has
bloomed this season is the midsum
mer sweater. Sometimes it is hand
painted in gay-colored flowers, some
times it is trimmed with a sash of
gaudy hue. Sometimes it is checked
and sometimes striped, but always
as bright as a garden of flowers.
These models were sketched from
Fashion-Art. The sweater is canary
color fiber silk with a crinkly stripe
of blue. The cuffs and collar are
trimmed with blue.
The prim person in skirt and waist
shows the newest patch in patch
pockets. Her parasol is lined with
striped silk that matches her blue
and white striped skirt. Her blouse
is sheerest hankerchief linen in
white, with blue frill to collar.
Hostess (at party) Does your
mother allow you to have two pieces
of pie when you are at home, Wil
lie? Willie (who has asked for a second
piece) No, ma'am.
Hostess Well, do you think she'd
like you to have two pieces here?
Willie (confidently) Oh, she
wouldn't care. This isn't her pie.
