"Notice the easy shoulder line, no padding this season! See the neat turnover collar, perfect for a single-strand necklance. Above all, you’ll like this Lentz Diminutive for the deep seaming that aids and abets this season’s higher bosom contour. Pattern A708 does sensational things to the young in figure because it is designed especially for those 5 feet 4 inches or shorter. Scaled with talented know-how to fit perfectly across the shoulders, waist and hips. That means no time-taking pattern alterations, no fussy, tiresome fittings! Sew it yourself and enjoy your dress from start to finish. Reap countless compliments for this, your own personal production. The graceful lines of A708 are perfectly suited for faille, crepe, satin or wool for an elegant afternoon or party dress." (from The Milwaukee Sentinel, october 3, 1954)
