SIMPLE DANCING FROCKS RULE IN SUMMER
Everybody dances these days
dance days as well as nights. At lawn
parties as well as balls, and at teas
as well as dinners dancing is sure to
enliven the entertainment.
So the dancing frock is just as nec
essary a part of the summer ward
robe as it is of the winter outfit and
the summer girl gives just as much
attention to her dancing dresses as
to her outing clothes.
The frock illustrated is made of
white charmeuBe, but it would be just
as pretty if white mull or Paris lawn
were substituted for the more ex
pensive material. The underskirt is "
short, and it's wide enough to allow
for the glides and slides of the new
dances. The tunic is very simple and
the bodice is simply draped around
the figure, giving the effect of a sash.
If made for day wear, short sleeves
and a round neck would be more ap
propriate than the sleeveless, low
necked gown pictured.
