Smart Fashions for Limited Incomes, United Kingdom, September 1942
Bargain Of The Month: It's superbly tailored in glencairn Cumberland tweed, soft and warm as a sheep's fleece, but a much better fit. The skirt, on a button-up waistband, has one pleat behind, three in front. Harella model at Dickens and Jones, 18 coupons, 8 1/2 guineas. British Vogue, September 1942, page 59. Norman Parkinson wrote on the back of a print of this image "a most generous Cecil Beaton wrote to Audrey Withers, the Vogue Editor, in '46 to enthuse about this picture in particular."
