When I was working on these double doll sets, I realized I hadn’t done any paper dolls for the Dames and Dandies with glasses yet. That seemed like a serious omission given that I wear contacts and can barely see without them. So, I knew I wanted a doll with glasses. The doll on the left has a hairstyle based on how a student who worked for me wore her hair and the doll on the right has blond highlights. That’s actually her second hair style. I really didn’t like the first one I designed, once I saw it on the doll.

That happens sometimes, because I draw all the hair separately and sometimes once I get it fitted to the dolls head, I’m not sure that I like it as much as I did in theory. Fortunately, it’s not hard to draw another one and through the “Power of Photoshop” there’s a lot of options.

Coloring wise, these versions of Beatrix have, of course, the same skin-tone as the other versions of Beatrix. I did however choose to match the paper doll’s glasses to her toenails, like you do.

Meanwhile, I posted a few progress images over on Patreon if you’d like to see some work in progress and my #100dressesproject continues on Instagram. Almost done! I’m in the 90s. 

And, as always, I’d love to hear what you think about today’s paper dolls.

    1. The style of the thumbnails means that overlapping will happen. I try to strike a balance between showing the pieces in color and black and white equally, also trying to display different details as I think they are important. Faces, for example, I think are really important to be seen in both. The collage is a way of making sure people know there’s both a black and white and a color version of each design available, plus I think it looks nice. There is never overlapping on the PDF images which are intended for printing.

  1. When I saw the title, I misread it as a pair of Beatrix Potter paper dolls, and I was curious how you were going to make two Beatrix Potter dolls.
    They are not, but I like these dolls.
