Children’s dresses always need patch
ing. That tlte patches may be of the
same shade as a wash dress when
needed, a good suggestion is to' sew a
small piece of the goods on the wrong
side where it will not be the way.
In washing, the piece will fade like the
dress, and be ready to use as a patch
with best results.
