  • Model: Charming Paper Doll Projects
Make your own paper fashions with this unique book by costume designer, Lauren George. Two paper dolls and four pages of patterns are included in this big, 96 page book along with easy-to-follow instructions to create your own 3D paper wardrobe, based on beautifully photographed scenes of the 1880s.

You don't need specialized skills for these projects... they are simple enough for beginners but sophisticated enough to intrigue experienced crafters. Each how-to section begins with a brief introduction that places the costumes in historical context and includes a materials list, photographic guide, and ideas for further research. You'll learn how to create workable templates, prepare pattern pieces, and embellish the dainty outfits with shoes, handbags, gloves, hats, and jewelry. Materials, consisting mostly of cut paper and flourishes of beads, lace, and ribbon, are inexpensive and easy to find. Plenty of helpful suggestions include tips for cultivating your own style and adapting the techniques you've learned to create original designs.

Includes two paper dolls and four pages of patterns to create your own 3D paper wardrobe for Reo and Lucille. Whether a crafter or not, this book is a beautiful keepsake, filled with beautiful photos and charming stories. More of Lauren's work can be enjoyed in OPDAG's Paper Doll Studio Issue magazine, issue 116.
