HOLIDAY FROCK FOR PARTIES
By Betty Brown
The holidays will bring dancing
parties and school parties and family
parties, and Miss Prettygirl mu3t
have a new holiday frock for these
festive occasions. This charming
model from Fashion Art is .designed
especially for holiday wear.
The model is made in pussy willow
taffeta, yellow ground and dull blue
coin spots with narrow velvet ribbon
in blue forming shoulder straps fin
ished at the waistline with knotted
streamers. The waist is draped
fichu-fashion, the "fichu" tiejng in a
hem to the skirt and the quaintest
thing about the frock, I think, is the
little pleated ruffle of yellow sUk that
tops the hem.
