Prominent Designer M299; ca. 1952; Peg Newton - Misses' Suit. "Dash and drama are the spices Peg Newton adds to this season's newsmaking slender silhouette. With flaring Dandy revers and jutting hip interest, she makes the narrow line seem so much narrower and you so much slimmer and taller. Creating a flattering effect is this designer's forte. She first won acclaim for her tall girl clothes. But her feeling for the exciting and unusal soon found appeal to all smart women. Pattern M299 is the kind of ensemble that's suited to many fabrics, so you must decide what you want. A dramatic theatre outfit? Then, make-this in slick satin or brocade. A distinctive daytime dress? Have it in sheer wool. If you're going South, make it in linen or polished cotton. With your Prominent Designer Pattern you can copy this fashion line for line, detail for detail, just as Peg Newton made the Original. Pattern M299 is available in Misses' Sizes 12, 14, 16, 18 and 20. Size 16 requires 4y8 yards 39-inch fabric.” (as stated in The Pantagraph, December 21, 1952)
