Women who already have to have the waistline of a ready-made dress raised may find a perfect fit in the junior department. This budgeted spring it is more important than ever to avoid expensive alterations whenever possible, so stylists urge women who are "hard to fit" in regular sizes to have a whirl at the junior department. for- the past 18 months and is on his first leave.
