Drawing Challenge : Dress

Am I the only one who remembers paper dolls? It seems they are now a thing of the past. I have many fond memories of hours upon hours spent creating & playing with paper dolls. So when I saw the theme for this weeks drawing challenge I knew that I would be reliving a happy part of my childhood.

I am having way too much fun, time to move on to some adult activities. 
Thanks Patrice for inviting me to participate & bringing out my inner child.


  1. Hi Sally. No you are not the only one who played with paper dolls. My sister and I spent hours dressing and undressing our paper dolls. The other day in a book store I notice quite a large selection of paper dolls for sale. I wonder how many kids actually play with them or if it's adults who buy them for ourselves?

  2. Oh la la. Your paper dolls even look French. I enjoyed playing with paper dolls, both the store-bought kind, and the ones we would cut out of catalogs.

  3. oh yes, i remember paperdolls
    and the fun i had
    yours looks lovely

    thanks for joining this DC!

  4. I remember them too, it was a favorite hobby for me.
    I do have a set of paper dolls I did for my grand years ago when she was way too young, but now I need to pull them out and introduce her to this fun activity. Thanks Sally for the reminder.

  5. I'd say she's one of the best dressed! What a fun challenge! Last year at an estate sale I found a bunch of paper dolls -- all cut out and good to go. Yes, I bought them!

  6. wow that does look like fun Sally! I loved paper dolls too and so does my daughter- yours is very fashionable indeed!

  7. Hi,Sally.
    I liked to play paper dolls too! How fashionable your paper dolls are! My dolls liked to be fashionable and also wanted to wear Japanese kimono!
    Have a good week.

  12. Hi Sally, You're not the only I used to make tons of paper dolls for my daughters to dress up and am thinking of one for the new DC challenge. Loving yours! Before the summer I made a hinging mermaid and then made her a flapper friend in jet black hair and jet beads. So much fun!

  13. I remember paper dolls and cutting them out and dressing them up!!
    Thank you for this lovely reminder Sally!
