KIRKUS REVIEW

The hows and whys of clothes in making the woman, which the woman in doubt should read, mark, learn and inwardly digest- and which the woman who ought to care and doesn't should be persuaded by her friends to study. For it really is good- though it demands interest and attention. The three main factors are (a) line; (b) color; (c) mood. It is difficult to follow the diagrams in relation to the text in galley proof, but seemingly all types of figures are charted, coloring in various combinations indicated, and the facts of what to do about length of skirt, two piece or one piece garments, decorative line, shoulders, hip length and treatment, kinds of materials, color combinations, appropriateness of clothes to temperament and use, and so on. There are some 78 analyses, for instance, of the effect of color on skin and hair. There are instructions as to how to find your own type of figure, shape of face, posture, coloring, how to study your own personality, looks, voice, movement. And people who have time-and interest- should find this rewarding study.
