Here's a plate from Graham's Home Magazine (for ladies, of course), June 1852. Graham's is somewhat lesser known than Godey's and Harper's Bazar, but has some of the nicest plates I've seen.
In case it's not obvious, I haven't managed to get back in the saddle on this whole blogging my paper dolls thing, which is just giving all sorts of grief. If it's any consolation, I have acquired some interesting original fashion resources (including Demorest's, Harper's Bazar, and Peterson's), which I am looking forward to sharing with you!
Along with, I really really hope, some actual new paper doll outfits!
