THE going-away dress is always a
A problem, and particularly so in summer
time. So I have designed this lovely suit
of silk to take that happy place in the trous-
seau of my brides this summer. Made of
gros de londre silk (or it is quite as good in
silk poplin), it will shed the dust and keep
you neat and trim when traveling. It gives
you an opportunity for any number of
dainty blouses, such as iy "Junetime,"
shown here, of white satin. The style of
this suit gives to the bride all the dignity of
her new estate, and has none of the too-
noticeable "trousseau" look. The broad,
white revers and cuffs, the black satin collar
and facings down the front and on the cuffs,
together with the large, black buttons, make
a very effective combination.
The satin blouse is tucked front and
back and finished with rows of hemstitching.
The sleeves, tucked at the wrist where they
are joined to a deep cuff, are specially
graceful and I believe you will find the
"choker" collar most becoming. You may
be sure your "Honeymoon Express" stamps
you a well - dressed, distinctive - looking
young matron. The hat, "All Aboard," is
a simple round sailor of black or white straw
with a tiny green or white band about the
crown. I hope my "Honeymoon Express"
may start you on a wonderful journey of
happiness -with my blessing.
