The slang word flapper, describing a young woman, is sometimes supposed to refer to a young bird flapping its wings while learning to fly. Flappers were a "new breed" of young Western women in the 1920s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. Do you love this era? Do you love The Great Gatsby? This kit is a must have for you!
