Storyline

Andre Perigourd, a dress maker, is Wallingford's next victim. Violet buys a dress from Perigourd, only to find out that it is a cheap, illegal copy of a designer's original. A burglar breaks into Wallingford's house and just happens to have Perigourd's address on him. Wallingford enters the dress shop pretending to be a customer, and Blackie Daw follows him and gives him $1,000 for his $150 investment. Perigourd asks to be let in on such a profitable investment, and Wallingford lets him in for $100,000. But Perigourd quickly realizes that he has been swindled and gets the police. However, Wallingford lets Perigourd know that with their arrest the fact will come out that Perigourd has been making illegal dresses. Perigourd gives in and once again the Warden girls get their revenge. Written by anonymous
