Chester came to my room tonight,

and didn't suit you, and that I didn't
suit you, and that you were different
clay from me. Beauty and the Beast,
he said, and that he thought you cared
for him, if you were not bound to me.
But you're not, little one; you're free

pale pink taffeta. Graduated tucks
gave body to the skirt, each tuck out
lined or edged with very narrow cream
lace, looking almost like fine thread.
The bodice was also tucked, the tucks
being deep at the neck and narrow at
the waist, thus producing the desired
broad shoulder effect so much sought.
Lace to match the edging on the skirt
waa appliqued on the long sleeves, and
one pointed tab fell over the hand. This
