New thing for the Florence paper doll today. It’s very exciting. Well… I think it’s exciting…

(I might need to have more thrills in my life.)

So, this dress was drawn off this fashion plate from the LA Public Library’s Casey Fashion Plate Index. It’s a fantastic collection of plates.

In case you missed Florence, the paper doll who wears these outfits, here she is.

Fantasy Style: Fantasy Paper Doll in Black and White

So, confession time: I actually had this done on time, but I put the wrong date into as the date to post. So, my template posted rather then my post and then I just noticed it like two minutes ago and now I am fixing it.

Yeah, I feel like a bit of a space cadet.

Still, here’s the paper doll which should have gone up at midnight and since it’s still the right day, I am not technically late.

I have mixed feelings about this paper doll. I like the lacing, the corset and the hair. I’m less sold on her eyes and face. I try not to be to down on my own work when it doesn’t turn out like I want it too. I draw all the time and it’s not like every paper doll is going to be perfect. The trick is to get back to the pad and do it again. I really do like some things about this set for Curves and I don’t like other things. This is okay.

I don’t think you should ever apologize for your art. Not that this stops me from doing it anyway.

There is a small child who lives next door to me. He has been crying all day. I feel sort of bad for him, but I do wish he would shut up. In other, unrelated notes, here is the last set of the clothing for Pixie. Enjoy.

Added Note 1/15/2010: Because of school work, the blog will be on a short break until next Monday. I will not be replying to comments or checking my site related email until that time. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but work and the graduate degree come first. Smiles- Rachel

Imagine there is a witty intelligent blog entry here rather then some random sentence I wrote before going to bed early since I have a horrible headache.

In case you missed her, here’s the paper doll to wear this afternoon dress. 🙂

Today’s paper doll is a bit late and I am sorry about that, but here she is in all her glory. I’m going to try to not miss any days this month, but I can’t promise to always be perfectly on time. Between graduate school, work and trying to have a social life, I’m afraid my lovely blog readers will just have to put up with the crazy time commitments of my life.

The pixie paper doll is one of my favorites. Her clothing is all inspired by psuedo-Victorian clothing crossed with sort of funky children’s clothing. Yeah, don’t judge me.

So, this weekend has gone really fast. I can’t believe I have work tomorrow. How is it that time goes so quickly? Ahh well, I have some homework to get done before bed. Enjoy the paper doll.

Florence’s Promenade Dress: 1870’s Paper Doll Clothes

A promenade dress for Florence, a paper doll from the 1870s.

{Click Here for a PDF to Print} {Click Here for a 150 dpi PNG to Print} {Click Here for The Rest of this Series}

This promenade dress for Florence is based on an image from a Godey fashion plate in Feb. of 1873. The gown was purple, black and white, but I’ve left it uncolored, so it can be any combination you like. The skirt is shorter then the carriage dress allowing for easier walking, though such things are rather subjective. It is the 1870’s after all.

I don’t think I would want to dress like a Victorian lady.

Here is Florence, in case you missed the first post in this series.

So, I’m kinda late here… okay… really late, but it’s still technically the third. As you might notice, I re-did the layout on the Curves dolls. I decided that I didn’t like how the layout looked and so I changed it. The old layout was too formal for how I thought of the Curves paper dolls. The paper dolls were inspired by people I knew who were unique funky and beautiful- but above all fun and interesting. The old layout too formal, so… I changed it.

And it make the paper dolls a little later then I had planned. I’m okay with this. The new Curves layout will be like this with a new doll for each set of paper dolls.

Unless I get really tried of drawing them… Cause you know, I am kinda fickle.

Florence’s Carriage Dress: Victorian Printable Paper Doll

Today, we have a carriage dress for Florence. Carriage dresses differed from walking dresses for the Victorian lady because they were intended to be worn while riding in a carriage. So, they often feature long trains and longer skirts.

It’s odd to realize that the bustle was originally considered a more rational solution to the huge width that crinoline skirts had grown too.

Fashion can be such a funny thing.

Outside, the snow has coated the ground and it is a beautiful white covering. It makes everything look so peaceful. Unfortunately, it also makes everything so very cold. I avoid spending much time outside in this icy Illinois winter.

Here is Florence, the paper doll that wears this series of gowns.
