However much tho lato soason may

aro cut out with only n modorato
decplletto neck, so that little of the
gulmpo beneath is shown.
The wldo kimono slcovos nro by no

wns almost a Torqgone conclusion that
tho big armholes with narrow sleeves,
or with trimming to simulate thorn,
woujd bo dovoloped. Moro and more
is tho tendency toward simplicity of

and moro and moro certain does it be
