A few bright notions to cope with a war budget

. Bring new life to a I depressingly plain g beige frock by knot- "

ting a white cotton tasselled cord round the neck and waist. With it white gloves

and halo hat.

. Simple, isn't it? Just a piece of ribbon which exactly matches your dress tied round your curls instead of a hat-and costs only a couple of

shillings.

. Vitalise a black frock with a deep yellow vestee and wide cummerbund margined with a tiny frill. The black hat is freighted with yellow flowers and tied on with green veiling.

. Add some detachable revers, cuffs, and pocket-flaps to a winter-weary suit to make it look like spring. This bright blue suit is offset with crisp white cotton coin-spotted in red.

. If you've got a remnant of gay, lush material make it into an evening sweater with mad pouch-pockets and wear it with an odd black or white skirt.

. Make an entirely new dress by the simple addition of a contrasting plastron. For fashion fireworks you might hand-knot a cotton fringe around the edge and make yourself a cunning

bag to match. (Left.)
