SPUN nylon jersey, which won’t shrink, sag or bag, is
making its first appearance in blouses combining high
fashion with extreme practicality.
The nylon jersey, hent-set to stabilize shape and size,
dries speedily and needs no ironing. It has, thus, the
good nylon characteristics in combination with the look
and warmth of jersey. Wrinkle recovery, too, is good.
Creases hang out in a very short time.
One jersey blouse knitted entirely of spun nylon, and
designed by Penny Potter, has a deep V neck anti three
quarter length sleeves. Fine shirring curves sunburst
fashion at the waistline to define the figure. This blouse
is done in both pastels and dark colors, to harmonize or
contrast with dark winter skirts.
Another such blouse, simply and smoothly tailored, has
a high, round neckline as focal point for jewelry touches.
A deep, curved yoke is edged with a covered cord which
ties at the center front in a small bow. __Modified bat
wing sleeves are three-quarter length.
' Both bloused are ideal travel companions as each can
be washed in a jiffy and worn an hour or so later. Like
men’s nylon shirts, which also require no ironing, the
nylon jersey blouses should prove popular^with_ sales-^
