  • Description

    WHATEVER THEIR STANDARD OF TENNIS, BRITISH GIRLS ARE BOUND TO BE A BIG SUCCESS ON HARD OR SOFT COURTS THIS YEAR.IT ONLY NEEDED A GLANCE AT DESIGNER TEDDY TINLINGS'S SHOW TODAY (TUESDAY) TO KNOW WHY HIS ELEGANT TENNIS DRESSES GAVE ICE-BOUND LONDONERS A NOSTALGIC REMINDER OF SUMMER.MR TINGLING'S TENNIS DRESSES-MOST OF THEM ARE IN 'TERYLENE'-ARE DESIGNED WITH AN "ALL-WHITE WIMBLEDON" IN VIEW.THIS DECISION FOLLOWED COMPLAINTS FROM SPECTATORS ABOUT COLOURED PANTS AND DRESS LININGS CHOSEN BY SOME COMPETITORS LAST YEAR.

    THE LINE THIS YEAR IS LONG - SOME OF THE SKIRTS START AT THIGH LEVEL AND THE LENGTH IS OFTEN FURTHER EMPHASIZED BY A BAND OF EMBROIDERY AROUND THE LOW WAISTLINE, OR JUST ABOVE THE HEM OF THE SKIRT.THIS IS PARTICULARLY NOTICEABLE WITH THE FLARED SKIRT MODELS, SOME OF WHICH FEATURE THE CIRCULAR EMBROIDERY.

    ANOTHER PRINCESS LINE DRESS IN 'TERYLENE' RAYON HAS FAGGOTING ALL DOWN THE FRONT AND AROUND THE HEM OF THE SKIRT.A NEW-STYLE WIDE "KEYHOLE" NECKLINE, ACCENTUATED BY A DEEP V INSERTION, IS SHOWN ON ANOTHER ALL 'TERYLENE' DRESS, WHICH HAS A DIAGONAL HERRINGBONE PATTERN EMBROIDERED OVER BOTH BODICE AND SKIRT.THE TOP OF THE SKIRT HAS A PANEL OF TINY PLEATS AROUND THE WAISTLINE.

    PLEATED SKIRTS ARE MAINLY BOX PLEATED STYLES.ONE WHICH HAS BEEN BOUGHT BY BOTH MARIA BUENO AND DARLENE HARD IS BANDED WITH SATIN AT THE HEMLINE AND IS TRIMMED WITH SATIN BUTTONS AT THE SHOULDERS.THE NECKLINE IS SLIT SLIGHTLY AT CENTRE BACK.APART FROM THE "KEYHOLE",
    MOST OF THE NECKLINES ARE CUT HIGH, EITHER SCOOPED OR SQUARE AND SOMETIMES TRIMMED WITH A BOW AT THE BACK.

    EMBROIDERY IS LAVISH AND ORIGINAL AND ALL OF IT IS NOVEL, FRESH LOOKING, ENTIRELY FEMININE AND ENCHANTINGLY PRETTY.
