Frosting For Spring Dress flic dress with a little jacket Is cMRntinl for daytime wcnr this fiprlrijr. As tlonn by deftigner I'ntil Pit rues (left), It's nn alliance of wool nnd print. Short purple wool boloro lops n pure silk purple- ami-white afternoon dress, Is lined In the print of the drew. Stitched pleat* of the skirt flnre from the hips. From RIsenbcrK (rlifht), comes a Rrny pure silk print ten mod with jacket of urny fliinnnl. Square, neckline of the dress is edged In flannel nnd there's n gruy flannel belt. Skirt Is completely pleated, worn over a taffeta nnd horsehair petticoat for added fullness. NRW YORK — (NEA) — The frosting on Ihe print silk dress ;• this Spring is a little jacket. And this little jacket, sometimes bust-length, may be a Spencer, a bolero or a capclet. Spreading from the. small top is a full skirl, pleated, or with un- pressed pleats, or simply with a soft fullness. The print of those new dresses is fine and subtle, offering pretty contrast to a monotone jacket. Usually, the print of the dress makes the jacket lining and the .jacket fabric reappears as trim on the dress, cither in Ihe belt or neckline, The princess silhouette, import- is essential to dresses, too. Add lo this silhouplle two others thai regisler: Ihe Empire look and the molded torso. A fourth strong silhouette is the one with a straight front and fullness at the back. It's accompanied by moderately full sleeves. The newest of the daytime skirls is the one that has fullness spreading from below the hipline. But skirts with all-around fullness get emphasis, too, and are seen in many jacket coslumes. There's a difference In jacket dresses this year in that the dross that goes under the jacket has interest in itself, rather than being just basic. Tliis menus that without the jacket, Ihe dress has merit of its own nnd can hold its place in the wardrobe. Other fashion points to watch for in Spring dresses ore full and girlish sleeves, crinolined skirls, and the waistline rising higher in nearly all daytime designs.
