July 8, 2011


Go Shopping with “Flapper Fanny”
Here She Is With Her New Pajamas and Next She’ll Dress for Her Shopping Tour;
Be Sure to Save the Sketch of “Flapper Fanny”

Get Mother’s scissors and your colored crayons and let’s help “Flapper Fanny,” popular newspaper feature star, pick out her new wardrobe. Of course you must shop carefully with “Flapper Fanny,” for she is known for her smart apparel quite as much as her smart sayings. To help you out, Gladys Parker, artist who draws “Flapper Fanny,” has designed six complete, brand new costumes for her and suggests color combinations for them.

First, paste the above figure of “Flapper Fanny” and the standard on heavy cardboard, and cut out carefully. Fold the standard on the dotted line and paste the smaller section to the back of the doll.

Next color “Flapper Fanny’s” cheeks pink, her hair brown and her lips very red. Now color the one-piece pajamas that just came from the store. The trousers are of green velvet and the full-sleeved blouse of yellow taffeta. Then cut them out and fold as indicated. You’ll find they just fit “Flapper Fanny.” Next you must dress her for her shopping tour.

Here’s a bright new dress, sent out from the store, and just the thing for “Flapper Fanny” to wear on her shopping tour. She likes pretty clothes so color this little frock to look like a bright red woolen one. The full-sleeved little lapin jacket is brown and so are the tie and belt. “Flapper Fanny’s” little beret matches her dress, so make it a red one too. When the whole costume is ready, cut it out and fit it onto your paper doll “Flapper Fanny.”

Now she’s ready for her shopping tour.

Next she will pick out a pretty school dress.

Here we are, shopping with “Flapper Fanny” and first of all she wants a school dress. So let’s have her try on this guimpe dress. Color the dress itself a deep blue and the guimpe white, leaving the bow and buttons black. Cut it out, now, and slip it onto little “Flapper Fanny.”

Doesn’t she look like a model little school girl? Right into her new wardrobe goes this dress!

Watch for the smart new dinner dress which “Flapper Fanny” will select tomorrow.

“FLAPPER Fanny,” just like you, loves to play “grown-up.” So she must have a long dress that will make her look like a full-grown lady. And here it just the one! With your crayons, make the dress light blue, with the shining collar just a shade or two deeper or even a pink. Be sure “Flapper Fanny’s” cheeks are nice and red and her lips too.

For you want her new wardrobe to look just beautiful on her.

Tomorrow “Flapper Fanny” will pick out a lovely party dress.

OF course at parties you must look your best — and so must “Flapper Fanny.” And she most certainly will in this pretty evening dress she finds in the store today. Gladys Parker, who draws “Flapper Fanny,” suggests you use your crayons to color the dress light blue, leaving the cape white, for it is white fur. Now dress your “Flapper Fanny” doll in it.

A very stylish miss, isn’t she?

Tomorrow she will select a “Sunday — go-to-meetin’ ” coat and it must be as smart as the rest of her wardrobe.

Ogden Standard Examiner (Ogden, Utah) Nov 20, 1932


FOR “Sunday-go-to-meetin’ ” “Flapper Fanny” deserves to look her best. It was a lucky moment when the saleslady brought out this gray coat with a great big fur collar that any girl would love. With your crayons, color the coat and then put some gay color into the bow tie. Cut out the dress and you’ll have “Flapper Fanny” all ready and waiting for the rest of the family.

If you have saved all the cutouts, “Flapper Fanny” now has a stylish new wardrobe.
