LOOK MAGAZINE FEATURE (February, 195?)
PAGE TWO OF TWO
THESE ARE PETTICOATS
Ballerinas take their poses in full petticoats that look like their own tutus. The new crinolines are as romantic as valentines...so irresistable in thei frou-frou prettiness they give new life to dresses with slim waists, full skirts.
Dotted organdy by Opera, far left; Dacron over Pellon with nylon panel by Eulalie for Newform; cancan ruffles and organdy tiers, both Florell
Florell's organdy tiers; Hatab's bicycle-print cotton; Newform's permanently pleated Dacron over Pellon.
Petticoats by Chevette (l.), John Norman (far r.)
("John, to have been in your shoes!" --editor)
"Petticoats, bouncy enough for ballet dancers, are for spring's full skirts"
NOTE: There were three other pictures in this feature article, but Alas!, too small to include:
1. Striped pink organdy, by Hatab.
2. Valentine-like lace by Fantasy
3. Ballerina at the practice bar wears Florell's organdy tiers.
