By ALICIA HART • NKA Staf/ Writer There's a good fashion trick going the rounds of households, back yards, gardens and city terraces— (he apron that's tied on over slacks —which the woman who sews can make and wear with her man- styled trousers. The Idea Is to tie apron-sfrings to these to make them look more feminine.' Besides making slacks look more flattering to her feminine. figure, an apron with deep 'patch pockets Is a big help-ln-need to the woman who putters from basement to back yard and back again. For proof of the apron's added usefulness, she • can ask the workman who reaches In his apron pockets for the tools that lie needs. When an apron Is made up of the same kind of fabrics as the slacks they're to be worn with, the two garments look as though they were designed to keep company. They will look smarter, as any color-matched ensemble does, than effects that are mis-matched. That idea has the backing of leading fashion designers this season. * WE, THE WOMEN * By Bull! Millett.
