      Nå, sagde Else en kende forundret – du har da din kjole fra konfirmationen, og i et anfald af largeness føjede hun til, skønt hun i virkeligheden havde fundet Gerdas konfirmationskjole alt for enkel og kedelig, den havde været af cachmire og uden videre besætning eller andre falbelader – den er da nydelig – og helt ny!

      Oh, Else said, somewhat bewildered – you have your confirmation dress though, and in a fit of largeness, she added, though she had actually found Gerda’s confirmation dress far too simple and boring, it had been of cashmere and without any decoration or other falbala – it’s pretty – and completely new!
