I don’t have kids, but I was recently blessed with my first Nephew. Now, before he was born, we didn’t know the gender. Finding gender neutral baby clothing was surprisingly difficult and I find I am still attracted to the idea of gender neutral children’s clothing. I’m always looking for more ideas for the Poppets paper dolls, since I tend to find historical kids clothing more interesting then contemporary kids clothing. However, I loved this sweatshirt and thought it needed to become a Poppet paper doll outfit.

I originally was going to do a more gender neutral color scheme of grey and khaki. However, when it came time to color it in, I might have said, “Hmmm… I could use all gender neutral colors… Or I could make bright pink leggings.”

Clearly, the bright pink leggings won.

As I often do with contemporary clothing, I felt like I needed a few more pieces to increase the mix and match options, so I also created the rolled shorts. I do think that the bird sweatshirt would look super cute with these jeans. I drew those back when I first introduced the Poppets paper dolls and somehow I haven’t drawn another pair of jeans for them since.

Huh. Maybe I should get on that. Do the Poppets paper dolls need jeans? Let me know in a comment.

Just in case you haven’t heard, there’s now a Paper Thin Personas shop on Etsy and, as a grand opening, have a coupon called: READER2017 for the blog readers. It’s good for 25% off an order of 4.00 or more until the end of March.

Meanwhile, if you’re not in a shopping mood, then think about becoming a Patron or liking it on facebook where I am sharing stuff from the Archives, as well as announcing new posts when they are posted.

Friday I’ll be posting my February dress for the 2017 paper doll collab project. So, stay tuned for that.

  1. I love this! The colors are great, the duck sweatshirt is great. Really cool. I would have bought that for my kids when they were cute little babies!

    Yup, neutral clothing is very hard to come by. It annoys me that gender stereotypes literally start before birth.
