Sometimes I come across something that does not exactly fit, but is in the right spirit of the theme. Here is a set of costumes for Pollyanna and Jimmy from a 1941 Whitman set that I came across here. I include it in this blog because it's specifically representing the Civil War, so I think it qualifies as a Civil War paper doll (and why not?). I don't generally look at a lot of the dolls created in the 40s and 50s because most of them are fashion or movie tie-in oriented, but occasionally a movie tie-in will fit the bill. This is also very "cute" compared to the things I generally like ~ I would probably never pursue owning something like this, but I like having it here in the digital collection.
In other news, I am working on some dolls today. We'll see how they come out.
