TEEN'S PAL — Teen gals are the ones who have the most need of ability and imagination With the needle; for they're the ones who wear out and grow out of clothes at the greatest rate. These three ideas can stretch n wardrobe budget a long way, if a gal uses her wits and sewing machine. A Bermuda skirt (left) is easy to make Sewing Machine Is Teen's Pal from a pleated skirt that's too short. Socks complete the outfit. Decorated sweaters (center) add lots of glamor even if they're inexpensively made, rather than bought that way.

BY ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Teen-Agers grow out of their clothes at alarming rates. It's a great shame tha tone isn't richest when in the teens, for a teener certainly can't do whate an older woman can —wear a suit for three years and shoes for two. Revamping and dressinp up old, worn or outgrown garments is one way an imaginative teenager extends her slim budget. With her sewing machine and occasional aid from her local sewing center, she creates a wardrobe of bright and seasonable clothes each season. Here are three do-overs for aging clothes that most teeners can manage. The imaginative ones can see even further possibilities.

A Bermuda skirt is usually 2l inches long, or three or four inches above the kiiee. With a chalk skirt marker, the skirt can be pinned up, turned under in a two-inch hem and there it is. Knee socks complete the look. Decorated sweaters can be made from inexpensive new ones or from ones worn at the buttons. A white sweater can be dressed up with a ribbon banding this way: Get enough black grosgrain to go up each side of the front and around the neck. Also get twice as much organdie for backing. Baste the ribbon on the top, the double organdie on the ba^k of the sweater. Miter the corners. Then, using the automatic zigzagger, go around the edges of the ribbon in a tniy diamond design. Trim the organdie close to the stitching. Holes in sweaters can be concealed with a felt design appliqued over them, using the narrow satin stitch on the zizagger. If the hole is in an odd place, several designs can be put on in other locations. A favorite blouse that's worn out at the arms can become a dickey to convert open-necked dress for Douglas Wilson and baby, j day night wear. The sleeves get cut I off at the shoulder seam. The blouse is cut off seven inches below the neck in front, nine, and a half inches in back. It should be cut in business session. Mrs. C. S.
