"Style, what you wear is also important. Double Mint Gum has not overlooked this and therefore went to one of the greatest designers in the world, Elizabeth Hawes, New York, and asked her to create for you the smart, becoming dress that you see on this page. It is easy to make. Double Mint has ever had Simplicity Patterns put it into a pattern for you. It’s the sort of dress that brings invitations along with the admiration of your friends. So that you may see how attractive it looks on, it is modeled for you by Hollywood’s lovely star, Joan Bennett" (as stated in a Double Mint gum advert in 1938)
