1930's French Paper Dolls

Mid-1930's French Paper Dolls from Viintage.com

Paper dolls have always seemed more interesting to me than dimensional dolls. There is so much more imagination that needs to be applied when playing with the flat form. And perhaps my fascination with paper dolls has been a contributing factor in my love of vintage pattern illustration. These 1935 - 1936 paper dolls were spotted in an online archive by my husband. Aren't these garments fabulous?!! They are available as a public domain free download HERE. Introduce your child or grandchild to the wonderful world of paper dolls with Les Robes De Suzy.

  3. Adore Art Deco anything but have a weakness for fashion in particular. Such neat dolls.

  5. I, too, always loved paper dolls, I thought it was because my mom could afford them so I had more of them than the 3d ones, but they also had so many more clothes and I could easily make more by tracing.
    These are so lovely! I have been watching Mr Turner's movie channel and catching all the amazing fashion - oh my! I think I watch the movies more to see the clothes than the acting!
