    WOMEN’S NIGHT GOWN: Simplicity 4758. The bias-cut skirt is finished with a tie belt. Style I has a high, four-button front, trimmed with self-fabric ruffling. The long sleeves, gathered near the lower edge, are held in place with a sleeve band applied on the outside. The waist front of Styles II and III, smartly trimmed with gathered lace, folds back to form revers and is finished with a two- button closing. Style III is made in the smart, short-length version.
