Hereby presenting a page from The Party Book (1922), published by Dennison Manufacturing Co., which tells the story of these St. Patrick’s Day costumes, today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.
“Pajamas are covered with white crepe paper to make the costume of the young man. Bands and shamrocks trim it, and the hat is fashioned of green matstock.
The colleen’s dress is of green and white crepe paper trimmed with shamrock cut-outs, large and small. Hat of green matstock with white crepe paper ruffle and trimmed with pompons made of white festoons.
Make a hoop of wire 35 inches in diameter for the overskirt of the shamrock costume. Paste a piece of crepe paper full width around the hoop, doubling the paper over the wire about 1 inch. Gather the other edge, then sew to the waist. Shamrock cut-outs used on the head dress are attached to wires and arranged in fan shape on the band.”
