The Cotton Dress Club

From Woman's Home Companion's 'Cotton In Action' by fashion editor Elizabeth Ambrose (May 1947 issue)

Skip, skip, skip to your lou in this gingham party frock (flies in your buttermilk not included)!

Dazzle that rugged out-of-towner at the picnic with your skimpy basket and severe pleated skirt!

Playtime in a 'mimosa and heliotrope'-colored playsuit with wide suspenders (with a giant 'red' balloon)

You'll 40-Love this cotton culotte tennis outfit!
