A few weeks ago the girls created some paper dolls with clothes. As their creativity flowed, we decided to make clothes from different eras.
Based on fashions seen in classic movies like Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice they created the fashions used in the 1800’s. They loved Little Women and used those dress styles from 1865. My Fair Lady inspired clothes from the Edwardian eras of 1900’s. The classic movie of Romeo and Juliet gave inspiration to the fashions of the Medieval era. Amadeus inspired the French fashions. One of the girls loved Hair Spray of the 1960’s and made a page of these fashions!
Here is the 10 page pdf. download ~Paper Dolls & clothes. As you will have seen in the earlier paper doll post, the girls colour in, then cut out the clothes and accessories before we laminate the pieces. They use prestick to paste each article on the dolls. (You may want to add shoulder tabs as the vintage paper dolls have instead.)
Of course we intend to cover more eras and styles … I have Ancient Egypt, Rome, Vikings and the Elizabethan eras in mind. And of course the modern era needs a page or two … And then I could think of different clothes from countries around the world … plus we will eventually need to include some men … Maybe I should plan 1 new download per month?
