"Since smart clothes as well as an attractive face mean charm, Double Mint gum had Hollywood’s fashion-creator TRAVIS BANTON design this very flattering, slim hipped looking Suit Dress for you, which Hollywood’s beautiful star CLAUDETTE COLBERT models, left. You can make this becoming dress for yourself by purchasing SIMPLICITY pattern 2902" (as stated in a Double Mint gum advert in 1939)
