Lots of teeners-are already pestering their parents or survying their budgets for the possibility of a new dance dress. But more times than riot if turris out that the parents or the budget can't stand the cost so soon after the busy holidays. So a little imagination is called for. The first possibility is a good swap or a loan. It doesn't particularly matter, ho woften your friend has worn a particular dress, no one- will associate it with you and it'll be just as good as°a brand-new dress for the occasion. The second possibility is home sewing. Old dresses can be made into skirts to go with a new frothy blouse. A • whole new dress, can be made for a small part of the cost of buying one. Consider revamping an 61d garment. Many mothers have old velveteen evening skirts that can be made into good ballerina lengtn skirt*. Pretty braid and trimming, a stiff petticoat, a new belt and a little use-of the scissors and needle can disguise an old dress 'completely. The standard pattern for the peasant drawstring blouse can be amended to add along sleeves for » very formal evening blouse.
