Every woman should be attractive in her home. Here she is an example for others and is judged for her true worth. Simple house dresses in attractive colors are very good. Dark, unattractive material should be avoided. It is not difficult to find patterns to fit the individual. One who is large and rather heavy should avoid designs that tend to broaden and wear straight lines. The length of the dress depends on the individual as well. Anyone who is large cannot wear short dresses. They should at least reach the tops of the shoes. No house dress should be extremely long and full for it will always be in the way.
