A 1912 Ladies Home Journal article showed examples of dresses that could be made for one dollar. Well-chosen material, neat sewing, and the careful adjustment of a dress are more to be desired than expensive material badly made up and carelessly adjusted.  This is easily demonstrated in the simple dress of blue dimity above, and you can readily duplicate it for one dollar. Pattern #6624, which is 10¢, requires in size 16, 5 yards of 36" material at 15¢ a yard, and buttons at 15¢.
