College News and Departmental Notes: Textiles and Clothing
by Departmental notes - 1920
An exhibition of ready-to-wear clothing is being shown by Professor Jane Fales in the Grace Dodge Building. The clothing, which includes as nearly as possible a complete wardrobe for a college girl, is of good wearing material, simple in design, and— from the standpoint of present prices—inexpensive. Two clothing budgets are posted, one showing figures compiled in Washington, D. C., during August and September, 1919, by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for a wardrobe for a government employee; the other giving the 1920 figures in New York for the same list of articles. In addition, various garments and their prices are shown, making the budget more directly applicable to the college girl's requirements.
