Paper Dolls as Inspiration

The paper dolls of Brenda Sneathen Maddox have inspired many of my favorite commissions and patterns. I love her style. ( I received a picture of a paper doll of Billie Dove, a 20's screen siren, and was asked to make the dress for a dress shop. Miniature clothing for a hanger is made very differently than miniature clothing to fit a doll and this commission was especially challenging. There is no pattern at this time, but I thought you would enjoy seeing what others like and how great things are in miniature.
