I thought I would take a moment to promote a couple of other sites out there that I really enjoy and that feature paper dolls in 19th century fashions. The first is Annas klippdocksblogg from artist Anna Forsén. The blog is in Swedish (which unfortunately I cannot read), but Google translator can give you at least a vague impression of what she's writing about. Still, you don't need it to enjoy her artwork! Anna creates mostly Regency-period dolls (19th century, right?), and they are wonderfully colorful (oh how I envy!). And she's incredibly prolific too (more to envy!). Click here to also see her website!
Her current project is a wardrobe for her doll, Annissa. The dress here at right is my favorite of her recent additions. Click on it to see more details, as always.
The other site I want to share is Margaret's Fleming's My Paper Dolls. Fleming has many many dolls from a variety of inspirations, including ten sets of dolls from the 19th century (one set for each decade!).
Fleming's work is very nice and they are presented in .pdfs for ease of downloading if you want to play with them. Her period details are wonderful. My favorite are the dolls from the 1870s (click on the sample to the left). These dolls are all colored digitally and Fleming talks a little bit about her process on her website.
If you have dolls from the 19th century in a blog or website, post a comment with a link ~ I always enjoy seeing new work! And also, a quick thank you to Liana, my original inspiration, from whose blog I found these and many other exciting sources!
