have experienced hands in both our mecca,

All our Skirts are made Or the best of Filet

Our Skirts are ISO corititrueted that the spri4k
fold inwardly, and readily yield to the slights:
pressure, t bus allowing them, to collapse so the
the skirt occupies the. small.t.possible spare
while sitting, riding or in passltig a crqw(l,,e ,
yet the moment the:Pressure is removed,
skirt resumes its original and heautiful shop.
We do not sell the.,e„ famous Skirts at hl price, but sell them as-cheap, if not ehetV
