Thoughts on Today’s Paper Doll
For the last few years, I have teamed up with some super talented other paper doll artists to create a shared paper doll project. This year, I designed the base doll and then everyone else got to draw clothing.

It has been a super fun project, as always, and I am looking forward to it.

Inspiration for Today’s Paper Doll
The dolls were all based on a sort of traditional paper doll pose. The theme for the clothing this month was Trends of 2019. I chose to illustrate what I think will remain popular in fashion on the left- sleeve detail and skinny ankle pants.

On the right, I chose to get a little more experimental. If there was one thing I noticed on the Spring 2019 runways, it was fullness. Huge skirts. Huge sleeves. High necks. So, I adapted those things into a cocktail dress.

Last Thoughts
My 2 dollar and up patrons, are getting an extra set of dolls today! I had a lot of fun designing them and hope you all enjoy them.

Also, this wouldn’t be any fun at all without my fellow artist, so be sure to check out the versions of this today’s theme from Paper Doll School, Miss. Missy’s Paper Dolls, Popculture and Paper Dolls and Paper Dolls by Cory. Cory did let me know he might be a bit late. That’s okay though. This is a fun project, not like… it’s not meant to be too serious.

By the way, what trends do you think will be in for 2019?

  2. that cocktail dress is so twiggy! would go great with the short-haired doll. it’s awesome that people downloading these dolls will have so many styles to choose from! : D

  3. Hi there. I love it when you do the collaborative work with other artists. It always gives a wider view of how things can be, so I am really glad you are on to this again, and with even more colleagues this year.
    Just one quick question: did Cory enter this or not? Because no matter how many times I have skimmed through his page you linked, I see nothing alike. I tried various searches in his page, but to no avail.
    Waiting to hear from you. And thanks once more for doing this.
