Youngsters Will Want to Wear These Before the Bell Rings mis 1392-B v By BARBARA BELL. There's just one drawback to these fashions! They're so attractive that the young ladies they're made for won’t be able to stay out of them until the bell rings! Such pretty dresses simply scream to be put on the minute they're finished! They’re young, practical, simple and pretty, with exactly the lines most becom ing to the size ranges for which they are designed. The patterns in clude a step-by-step sew chart and are so easy to work with that to re peat them, if need be later on, will be no trouble at all! In design No. 1992-B, juniors have a fashion that will fit perfectly into midsummer plafts, and be very use ful the minute school starts, too, for it includes both a play suit and a jumper. The play suit is beauti fully cut, and made with action back and convertible collar. The top is becomingly gathered. The shorts have the proper flare, so that they’re very good looking and al low complete freedom for active sports. The jumper, made in the popular pinafore style, has very smart stitched detailing in the front. The straps, crossed in the back, are set on close enough to the shoulders so that they won’t slip off. Worn over the play suit, it makes a charm ing school and everyday outfit, and you can wear it with your tailored blouses, too. Seersucker, cord, cam bric, gingham, linen, or broadcloth are good materials for the play suit. Linen, gingham, pique and' (later on) wool crepe or flannel are excel lent choices for the jumper. Very smart and becoming for classroom wear and spectator sports Is the unusually youthful version of the shirtwaister offered in 1976-B. The fullness of the bodice and the flare of the skirt make it very flat tering to slim young figures, and the tailored "little-boy” collar looks charming on everybody! A distin guished point of style in this frock Is the presence of capacious cash and-carry pockets that loop over the narrow belt. It’s such a simple style that you can do a lot with color in making it. Vou can use a bright plain tone or a dashing print, or combine a striped bodice with plain skirt, and make collar and cuffs to match the skirt. Made in gray or soft green, with a scarlet leather belt, it will be stunning.
