The success of a wardrobe depends not on the amount of money it costs, but on the thought and care put into it. Careful planning, wise buying and a knowledge of sewing will help us to dress economically. In order to look our best, we must study our figure and complexion and select styles which suit our type, and colors which bring out our coloring. It has been said, "To be well dressed one must have the sense to look, the courage to see, and the wisdom to know just what to do about it.”
