Thoughts on Today’s Paper Doll
Sleepwear is something I don’t seem to draw very much. I don’t know why, but it just doesn’t seem to happen. Both of these nightgowns could also be dresses, I suppose, if one was feeling super casual.

I specifically wanted to do a whimsical design on the pink nightgown to feel like something you might see as a novelty print.

Inspiration for Today’s Paper Doll
Well… night gowns? I mean… I don’t draw a lot of paper doll sleepwear, so I wanted to make those, plus I’ve been working on some paper doll sleepwear for my Etsy paper dolls.

Last Thoughts

I hope everyone is having a great December. I’m taking a little holiday break from the blog here from the 15th until January 2020. I’m off to visit family! Meanwhile, there’s plenty of paper dolls here to explore.

  1. I found your website yesterday by googling “African American printable paper dolls”. This led to a post you had a few years ago with an internet round up of black paper dolls. I was so happy but realized I wanted magnetic dolls for my girls. And you pulled through again.
    I just want to say thank you for the beautiful dolls attention to detail etc.
    You’ve helped this broke mom make her daughters very happy.

    I do have a question.. It’s probably stupid but the other paper dolls I can print them on magnetic paper and just omit the tabs to make them magnetic dolls too?

    1. Any of the paper dolls you print on magnetic paper will be magnets. However, they maybe not to scale with the ones I resized and reformated for magnetic paper. Additionally, I do try with my magnetic ones to not waste any of the magnetic paper (it’s so expensive) and so I remove a lot of the spacing. Anyway, the short answer is Yes.
