Butterick 8063; ca. 1939; Misses' Dress. “You crave for variety; you want quality; you must keep a balanced clothes budget. Then my answer to you is : make a play on trimmings. It was never a smarter idea than this fall; never easier. All you need is a pattern like 8063. Its basic trickery lies in two slits at the top. Through these you can whisk the flowers of a contrasting vestee. Or you can decorate them with a pair of brilliant clips. Or hide them entirely under the pointed ends of a second vestee’s collar. Another bit of camouflage comes in the way you handle the button closing. One day you fasten it all the way, the next midway, the next not at all. Because this is important dress, you’ll want the latest in materials. I suggest a woolly-looking rayon or a slightly crinkled silk or a crisp crepey woolen. And for color one of the Paris-inspired grape shades.” (by Ethel Holland Little, Fashion Editor)
