wear a washable slip bodice under a

and so be really fresh In feeling and
dainty in appearance.
So, too, with the street suit the

the worst part of a blouse to launder,
as everyone will admit who has had
any experience, Is the sleeves. These,
of course, are lacking. Yet the waist

a dark suit makes Just as good an ap
