Here it is again: The pantalette – they are wearing ’em, too
Don’t be shocked, girls. They are pantalettes, and perfectly proper, too, we assure you.
Dame Fashion has gone and done it again, meaning that she has found another fad for Femininity to follow.
This time it’s the elongated bloomer which comes down to within two or three inches of the high shoe top and prevents the need of underskirts, even though the dress skirt be full.
When the thermometer climbs, as it always does climb in September days, it’s might handy to have an easy substitute for the fluffy fulsome petticoat.
Worn, as Miss Helen Spencer is wearing the new garb, with a thick corduroy skirt, it makes a capital combination.
Many of these clever substitutes for the skirt are made of Indian silk and finished at the lower hem with neat little garter bands which hold them in place.
