A dress which can be made in a morning, and which will be comfortable and cool for the young wearer is shown in this illustration, No. 6304. A blouse and skirt compose the dress. The blouse has a deep tuck at each shoulder in both front and back, and this extends to the waistline, stitched in all the way. Such an arrangement gives a wide, flat panel in the front and back, and this is most becoming to the child figure. The neck of the blouse is cut square and outlined by a flat band trimming. This is continued down the side-front closing of both waist and skirt. The sleeves are of bishop design, except that they have no fulness at the shoulder. At the wrist, if made long, they are gathered into a band cuff, but the shorter length is more popular, and if they are shortened to the elbow they are finished with a pretty turn-back cuff.
A three-piece skirt completes the dress. This is arranged with an underturned plait at the center of the back and at each of the side seams, so that there is a little fulness for the comfort of the child, while the appearance of extreme slenderness is still maintained. A small bag hanging from the belt takes the place of a pocket, and adds a touch of novelty.
