By PATRICIA McCORMACK NEW YORK (UPI) - Designers of suit jackets today reaffirmed their dedication in the campaign against button-popping and seam- splitting. Jackets are more fitted than they were last year. You can’t conceal a book under them. But they're inches away from being even distant relatives of the once-fashionable tightly fitted suit jacket-the kind that ample females often had a hard time breathing in after a big meal. The trend to the demi-fitted suit jacket *vas dominant in collections shown during the second day of the New York couture group’s semi-annual press week for the nation’s fashion press corps. Demi-fitted means the jackets are shaped somewhat to the body in front and backs hang freely, unfitted. The silhouette’s comfortable even after three slices of applie pie. Shoulders are soft, dropped, unpadded, casual. Necklines are schizophrenic split in personality. Some are stitched to move away from the neck. Others are fashioned to hug the neck. Skirt silhouettes are flared or slim. The flares range from slight to tremendous. The pleated look continues. The box, knife and culotte variety were seen. The suit colors include many shades of green, including olive, bright and jade. Other colors: red, magenta, vibrant blue, light navy. Fabrics include the old faithfuls: Wool crepe, flannel, wool knit, flat double knit, ottoman, boucle, wool jacquard, corduroy. The colors are solid. Or they're served up in checks, plaids, stripes and contrasts.
