Either dimity or bordered organdy is the perfect material for the costume above, trimmed with a bit of narrow lace and insertion. Patterns for the waist came in six sizes: 32 to 42 inches bust measurement. The waist required three yards of 36-inch wide material. The skirt had a gathered straight lower part joined to a sectional yoke, and required six yards and seven-eighths of 36-inch wide material.
