Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations:A Dress from 1985
The first theme for our collaborative project was a dress from the year we were each born. So, for me that meant drawing something from 1985.
So, I went loooking for clothing from 1885 and came cross this Barbie dresses from Oscar De La Renta. I love Oscar De La Renta’s designs and I had no idea he’d done a series of Barbie clothing. Inspired, I combined this dress and this dress. You can see more of his Barbie designs here and here.
My mother was pretty anti-Barbie when I was a kid. She felt that it wasn’t a healthy body type for girls to aspire too, so she mostly bought me Ginny dolls. I did have a few Barbies, of course, but they weren’t my favorites.
