Prominent Designer M392; ca. 1955; Esther Reifer - Misses' Dress with optional Dickey and Belt.

"The fill-in dickey is fashion's new neckline magic," declares vivacious Esther Reifer, American designer known for young looking fashions, fit lends a casual air to the simple basic lines of Pattern M392. When an unexpected evening date comes up, remove the dickey, add glittering jewels and presto! you're ready for exciting doings. If you're like me—always on the go—this will be the busiest basic in your closet." Mrs. Reifer promises. The free and flowing skirt—close-cling bodice—easy grace are typical of this talented designer's style. You'll enjoy sewing Pattern' M392—it drapes beautifully in almost any fabric. Certainly newsmaking in a cotton tweed, it would be smart in wool crepe tissue faille, too. Choose jersey, satin, or cotton for the dickey—black or a bright contrast. Big occasions coming up, better" sit right down and send for your exclusive designer'pattern now! (as stated in Lebanon Daily News, November 1, 1955)
