Fashion from January 1951: Youthful Junior Styles North and South

And  now for a look at a couple of outfits for the junior figure from January 1951 and McCall - a "hurry-up dress for the South" with a pretty scalloped collar, and a versatile North-South date dress. :D

McCall 8355

One of the fastest, easiest, designs you could choose to make! It's a blouse-and-skirt dress, strongly favored by Juniors and designed especially for companion cottons. The skirt in figure A is a lengthwise stripe cut cross-wise - make it with a seamed-on border, or without (as in figure C). Three views, three exciting fabric combinations. Sizes 9-17. 50 cents.

McCall 8354

New and important is the side-flaring peplum. It perks out saucily on either side of a flat smooth center front and center back. Especially flattering for slim-hipped Juniors with not-so-flat tummies. View A, a sunny south design - crisp cotton checks sparked with brisk, white accents. Version B, a north-or-south date dress - just the thing for wool-and-silk faille, heavy crepe. Sizes 9-17. 65 cents.
