FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 29 January 1915
SFOR WOMEN (By "Ambroslne.") Blouse wear was never quite so beau tiful. Even the simplest styles are a bit of a revelation. One such developed in batiste or silk has a shield-like yoke with arched front divided by plain graduated collar. The arch is studded with buttons, and the shield lies fliat. The iest of the blouse is gathered to this, falling loosely, and the long sleeve lhas a cuff with a half turn, and three buttons. Another plain blouse is of crepe or lawn. It has a front just that of man's dress shirt with "V" neck and rolling collar. The rest of the blouse is baggy, under sleeve line from waist, and the front is outlined with a seam, and stitched to conform at closing, six buttons. A short shirt cuff, has two buttons. Blouses, front view, simulate the lines of thle letter "X'" or '"V" or '"A" (bar omitted) with the. sides bending out. This last is the most fashionable fancy, being express ed with bands both narrow adil broad, anti sometimes so very broad as to compass the...
