'Of course, I have a figure problem — I'm five feet nine and a half, 38-24-38, and my waist is two inches longer than any dress you can buy. I have to alter my patterns, but that's easy too—easier than trying to stretch the waist length of a ready-made dress. "I can make a 4ress in a day. I get up early in the morning and I don't stop until it's done." Cleste Holm says she has-been turning out dresses since her doll- clothes days. Daughter of a designer, she learned the fine points of sewing as a school-girl in France. And, busy as she is, she still finds time to make a dress or two each season and to design her own night club and stage costumes.

Menlo Av., Los Angeles 6, Calif. By DOROTHY ROE "So glad you like it, dear. I made it myself." Gypsy Rose Lee speaking, preening in a smart new gown that looks like the latest thing from Paris. "Of course I know how to sew," remarks the famous strip-teaser, movie star, author and art connoisseur. "Doesn't everybody?" Right now it looks as if everybody really does, as the home- sewing craze, spreads to the upper echelons of stage, screen and television. Among glamor girls who sew their own nowadays are such luminaries as: Celeste Holm, pert and highly sophisticated actress and night club singer; Loretta Young, star of movies and TV; Gail Storm, television headliner; Betty Furness, also of TV fame, and the chic Dorothy Rodgers, wife of composer Richard Rodgers, to name a few. The beateous Gypsy is an old hand with the needle and thread. She sews everything from dresses to slipcovers and from skirts to hats. On a recent movie location job she took over the job of wardrobe mistress for the cast, when no local dressmakers could be found. Right now she's engaged in a project of making skirts out of antique patchwork quilts for herself and her equally glamorous sister, actress June Havoc. Says she: 'It's a breeze to make smart clothes nowadays, when you can get Paris designs in home-sewing patterns. Anybody should be able to make a dress, if she "knows how to read and use a sewing machine.

GROUP 2 Group Two met at the church CELESTE HOLM — Noted actress and night club singer wears her favorite home- sewn dress, a sheath. "The Third Best Sport," Celeste says: , "Any woman who knows her own figure and knows what she wants can get more for her money if she sews her own. She can afford the best fabrics, and make her clothes with a custom fit. My latest home-sewn favorite is a simple straight sheath in the most beautiful Italian silk in the world —aquamarien. I've never had so many compliments on a dress, and I epxect to be wearing it f o r years." Mrs. Rodgers, who could barely turn up a hem until a few years ago, now makes not only dresses but also slacks — a major test of sewing skill. In addition she has invented a new type of basic GYPSY ROSE LEE — Her famous figure is duplicated in the dressmaker's dummy on which she fits new dresses. soft, drapable, non-woven cotton that won't stretch or shrink, it can be stitched on the machine and ironed, so that a woman who takes the trouble to alter patterns lo her exact measurements can re-use the same basic, perfectly fitting pattern many times.

Two weeks ago someone put a mousetrap in my desk drawer and when it snapped it almost scared me out of my wits. Yesterday an artificial snake popped out at me from the file cabinet. The office manager buys gags from a novelty shop, such as glasses with trick bottoms. When I complained (after the telephone book incident) they said I was a poor sport and had no sense of humor. Am I humorless or are all American offices like this one? —SMALL TOWN GIRL Dear S. T. G. All American offices are not like this. You fell in with a collection of Grade A dingbats. There's nolhing funny about being hit with a telephone book—especially when you live in Buffalo where the book is pretty hefty.
