Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations:Chambray Summer Dresses and Sandals
Sometimes, I draw paper dolls and I have wonderful detailed ideas of what I want to say about them. Sometimes, I draw paper dolls and I have really nothing to say about them. Today’s paper doll falls into the later category. I just don’t really have much meaningful to say about her.
I like her, don’t get me wrong, but she’s not as full of complex inspiration as some of my other work.
She was a case of drawing the dress and then drawing a doll to go with the dress. I wanted to draw a short chambray dress. One of the big trends this summer is chambray dresses. I mostly use chambray for sewing doll jeans. It’s super useful for that, but it also works really well as a sundress material.
My plan was to make two sundresses and use them as a clothing post. I hated the other sundress so much that I scribbled it out of my sketchbook, so that didn’t work out.
To salvage the dress that I had, I decided to draw a doll do go with it. Drawing her hair gave me a chance to practice short hair. I need to practice short hair more. Also, I am sort of in love with her eyebrows and I can’t explain why.
I designed her shoes to be basics. I wanted them to go with pretty much anything else she might decide to wear.
So, what do you think? Cute? Looking slightly pissed off? Let me know in a comment. I always love to hear from you all.
