The Summer Date Paper Dolls are Saalfield #2587 from the year 1948. Here is the front cover. This was obviously a double date with two guys and two girls. It looks as if they are having a cookout picnic in somebody's yard.
Here is the back cover of this set. It looks as if they are getting ready to do some canoeing. I love the swim trunks and the ankle socks on the guy on the left. Ha ha.
Here is the first set of clothes for this set of paper dolls. Three for the girls and two for the guys. The girls have a casual brown dress with a bow at both the collar and waist. There is also a long summer evening dress in pink and white that comes with long pink gloves and a draw string purse. There is also a white mink coat (I guess in case it gets extremely chilly on this summer date). The guys outfits on this page include a green shirt and tie, and then a brown suit complete with jacket, shirt and tie, matching shoes and a handkerchief in the pocket. We all know what gentlemen all the guys were in the forties.
This second page of clothes is almost all for the ladies. There is a casual day green dress with a matching hat. The hat could also match the orange suit below it. The orange skirt and jacket make for a bit of a formal daytime outfit. There is a casual pants and shirt for one of the guys next. Now that looks very comfortable. Then there is what can only be described as a candy striper's dress for one of the gals. There are two pink hats as well. There is a pair of shorts and a shirt with a tennis racket behind the back. I think this is an outfit for one of the guys.
This page starts off with a gentleman's evening outfit - a pair of pants with a long overcoat and an ascot at the neck. There is a green dress for one of the ladies and a fur coat as well. There is a yellow sweater with what looks like a tie at the neck, so I am going to assume it is for one of the guys. There is also a blue and red dress. Also included is another long evening dress. I love these long evening dresses. This one is pink and green striped with a green top and pink necklace.
This page is all about the evening, I think. There is a green dress with white lace trim. The guys have a black tuxedo! There is a red and white dress with matching red jacket. But my favorite on this page is another long evening dress. This one is blue with red trim. So adorable!
The Summer Date Paper Dolls really keep busy. Here is another evening dress - pink and black, my favorite colors. There is also a blue daytime dress and a brown daytime dress. There is another suit (gray and blue) for the guys.
