("LUCILE")
HERE arc some of the new walking dresses
for Spring and Summer. You will no
tice that even in these the new long lines
of the skirt hold good, and that instead of close
fitting, severe outline the dresses run to graceful
and full folds.
The large figure is .a morning dress?or walk
ing dress?of dark blue serge. Its wide sash is
