The only question is what can be done with it? It? out of style and worn.
Maybe it needs a new lining, or should ha stylishly trimmd. That old co it would
make a beautiful cape, and capes are juet the thing this season. There's that old
fur garment you haven't worn for years, beciusi it is all "fagged out." Why. that
will make a beautiful collarette; just th) thing for fa'I and spring woir. Then
just look at that garment. It is entirely "gone up." the hair stands the wrong
