I love 1960s fashion. So, I also love paper dolls of the 1960s and these paper dolls are my ode to that era and it’s amazing fashions. Seriously, drawing this beehive for Abigail was maybe the most fun thing I’ve done in a while. I still find the beehive one of those hairstyle that you think must be a joke, until you find vintage photos.
And then it is like, nope… that was a real thing. (Yes, I know I can’t make too much fun- I was alive in the 1990s.)
Paper Dolls Of the 1960s & Clothing of the 1960s
The other really great thing about the 1960s is how colorful it was. One of the best parts of that decade was that they really embraced radical color schemes. I know some people might argue some of the radical color schemes weren’t attractive, but as someone who loves color. I think it is super fun.
