The copy for this newspaper ad reads: IN COOL SHEER DEFIANCE OF SUMMER HEAT "Unarmed" is the way to greet the Heat Wave! It's also the way to simplify your dressmaking problem. No sleeves here -- but what charming substitutes! Pattern 2228 makes a yoke-cape-sleeve all in one smart cut of fabric & adds the Feminine Touch with a flattering little ruffle outlilning the cape & repeated in the unusual belt closing. You can omit the ruffle & choose a constrating color for the cape yoke if you've a mind to. But make up your mind right now that your next "Tailored" model will adopt Paris' pet, the ruffle! Pattern 2229 shows you how. Choose one of the lovely new sheer fabrics to make either or both of these feminine afternoon charmers. ... this clipping was found in a Pictorial Review pattern envelope dated 1925.
