FOR CHILDREN'S DRESSES
Everv mother who once uses Serpentine Crepe for her chil
dren's Rompers and Dresses is ever afterwards an enthusiast
The twenty-six plain shades and nearly innumerable printed
patterns offer her a wide choice of styles and colorings, and
when used either separately or m combination atrord her
an opportunity to prepare, at very small expense, gar
ments of real beauty and of great wearing worth.
All mothers also highly appreciate the fact that
carments made from Serpentine Crepe do not have
to be ironed : simplv wash, shake out and dry, and
they are as good as new. Thc'crinkle never washes out,
but retains its freshness until worn out.
Children also like Serpentine Crepe garments, as the flexible
crinkle allows the garment to instantly respond to every move
ment of their never still bodies, and they do not draw and
tear like garments made from closely woven fabrics which
will not stretch.
All in all, Serpentine Crepe has proved to be just the ma
terial needed for children's garments, and every mother is
nrrpd rn trv it. and thus learn its
o - --j --, - - f
great beauty and great wearing worth.
All of Omaha's leading' Dopartmont

Crepe at very reason-
