Playing dress-up

When I was a little girl, I loved paperdolls. I liked to make my own clothes for them. Sometimes my mammaw would get an old Simplicity pattern book for me to play with. Those things were a treasure trove of dolls and clothes! Hours of fun! I thought about that as I made this piece. I already have more dresses cut out, so be expecting more........

This is so pretty! Love the colors and theme. I remember the paper dolls fascination; my mother would occasionally pick up a McCall's magazine and give me the Betsy McCall paper dolls that appeared in every issue. I used to BEG her to buy more magazines, but she only bought them once in a blue moon. (Darn, why couldn't she have subscribed?) Fortunately my grandmother had a whole box full of paper dolls that had belonged to my mother and I got to play with them whenever we visited. I guess we never lose our love of dress-up and play acting, do we? :)

Oh, I could just go on and on about paperdolls! Love, love, love this piece! I used to occassionally get the Betsy McCall paper doll too but you know that magazine was somewhat expensive at the time. That is why it was only occassionally. I had this SO fun paperdoll that my sister made for me. I played with that thing til it got limp. Then, my niece who was a few years younger but not that much younger, got it and tore it up. Waaa! I still remind her of that too. ;)
