Vintage Paper Dolls


I just discovered the cutest vintage stuff ever - Vintage Betsy McCall Paper Dolls! It's the cutest thing I've seen in a while! They have one set of printable paper doll with clothes for every month from 1951 to 1961 - my favorite fashion era!









Here's some info about the dolls:

"The May 1951 issue of McCall's magazine introduced Betsy McCall, who was presented as five going on six. The first artist was Kay Morrissey." - Source is here.



Too cute! They actually remind me of the wonderful Annika Victoria

It's available in printable form or you can order the CD with all the scans in it for under $2. I swear I'm going to print every last one of them. My stress absolutely dissipated when I saw them. It reminded me of my childhood days. My sister and I used to collect paper dolls. I used to have a box full of paper dolls and we used to draw lots of clothes and shoes for them. 

It's really nice to look at these dolls for fashion inspiration, don't you think? :)
