© National Geographic Society Autochromes by Gervais Courtellemont TRADITIONAL COSTUMES STILL HOLD THEIR OWN AMONG IVIZA'S PEASANT HILLS Although bobbed hair and abbreviated skirts have appeared in the island's capital, the fashions of other days still find favor among the women of the countryside. The holiday attire of these daughters of the soil not uncommonly consists of as many as ten skirts, each very full and abit longer than the one next beneath. As the ladies walk they raise the outer garment above the knees, that the beauties ofthe underskirt may not beentirely lost. Their shoes are shapeless creations of white canvas.
