FASHON COLUMN BY JOAN NIELSEN McHALE SCRUBS MIDI FOR MAKING A LIVING DULL

                 McCALL'S PATTERNS SERVE UP BOTH MINI AND MIDI IN ONE PATTERN  #2476.

Pick a look: be a living dull or a living doll.

Consider the contrast between the two lengths as mute evidence for how much the midi can do to enhance the figure of a sweet young thing. Both dresses are cut from the same casual raglan sleeve pattern. One looks so right,
the other so-so or so-what, depending on your point of view.

Although some may argue that the midi is just another length in the wardrobe, it makes you wonder to what lengths we should go to prove we can look unattractive. Lest the midi propaganda bring you to your knees -- or worse,below --remember, it is hardly worthy of a genuflect.

No matter how it's picture, the midi makes a woman look older and dull. And you know what? A Mother Hubbard will do the same thing. Cheaper.
