How to Sew Doll Clothes for Beginners {Making Doll Clothing}

Making doll clothing is so rewarding and a great way to use up some of your favorite small pieces of fabrics. Here I will give you tips on how to sew doll clothes for beginners including choosing fabrics, cutting, stitching and finishing It is also a great way to teach kids to sew as most patterns are very simple and don’t take long to make. The first thing I ever made was a simple elasticized skirt for my beloved teddy when I was 7. I still remember it so clearly. I don’t have the skirt any more but I do have the teddy!

Once you have some confidence in making doll clothing, it is time to create a whole wardrobe! Check out my sewing pattern shop for more doll clothing patterns. There are also matching girl’s dress patterns for most of these so you can create a “dolly and me” look. Here are just some of your choices.

Making Doll Clothing

Making Doll Clothing: Fabric and Trims

  • PRINTS – Fabrics with small-scale prints work the best.
  • SOFT FABRIC – Fabrics should be soft and not stiff. Quilting cotton works well for many patterns.
  • FABRIC TYPE – The composition of the fabric you use doesn’t matter but try and choose fabrics that are not too thin as they are more difficult to sew due to the small seam allowances and size fo the garment.
  • SCALE – Use small-scale laces and ribbons for trims. Sometimes you can cut laces down smaller. Otherwise, look for 1/4 inch (6mm) widths.
  • UPCYCLING – Save money and don’t limit your fabric choices to your fabric stash. Consider upcycling old clothing and t-shirts for some really creative ensembles.
  • MUSLIN – Because different brands of 18 inch (46cm) dolls and toys can vary slightly in measurements, make the first try of a new pattern in muslin or a cheap fabric to check the fit before using expensive fabric.
  • FASTENINGS – Velcro can get caught in the doll’s hair so buy either doll velcro or the type used on baby clothing. These types of velcro are softer and less scratchy.

Making Doll Clothing – Cutting

  • BE ACCURATE – Because your pattern is very small and the seam allowance is only 1/4 inch (6mm) it is important that you cut accurately to ensure the garment fits well when you are finished.
  • KEEP TRACK – Keep the pattern pieces pinned to the cut-out fabric until you are ready to sew to help identify the pieces more easily.

Making Doll Clothing – Stitching

  • STARTING – When you start sewing, hold the threads tightly to prevent them from getting caught up underneath.
  • TROUBLESHOOTING – If your fabric is getting caught in your machine as you sew due to the small seam allowances, you could try sewing over a piece of thin paper to stabilize it. Gently rip the paper away when you are finished.
  • STITCH SIZE – Use smaller stitches than normal if you want it to look to scale. Try a length of 2.0 on a scrap of your fabric and see how it looks.

Finishing Seams for Doll Clothing

  • Many of my pattern instructions include seam finishing options but really your dolly doesn’t care about the inside of the dress. You will notice many bought doll clothes are unfinished inside.
  • In thicker fabrics, finishing your seams with a serger can add bulk due to the extra threads. Try a narrow zig-zag stitch or pinking shears. If you want to use your serger, try using a 3 thread overlock.
  • Using a fray stop (also called Fray Check) solution is another great way to stop seams unraveling.

Further reading: Seam finishes without a serger

Making Doll Clothing – Pressing

  • Like our own clothing, dolls clothing looks better if you press as you sew.
  • It is not essential but it can help to buy a mini iron like Clover makes to press fiddly small seams

Further reading: How to press for sewing

18 inch Doll Alternatives

Plastic 18-inch dolls can be expensive and hard to find in some countries so why not sew your own!

The Milly rag doll pattern will fit all my 18-inch doll clothing patterns. Technically she is a little taller as her feet point downwards but her body has similar dimensions to most of the popular brands so you can sew her a whole wardrobe. She comes with the dress pictured so you can start off her clothing collection in style.

I also have a rabbit rag doll to fit my 18-inch doll clothing. Her name is Rachel and she comes with the tutu dress pattern.

Making Doll Clothing – In Conclusion

So it is time to get making doll clothing! I hope these tips and tricks on how to sew doll clothes for beginners have got you started on your way. Thanks for reading and I hope you’ll check out the doll patterns in my sewing pattern shop!

How to Draft Patterns for DIY Barbie Clothes

This month I wanted to do something different: DIY Barbie clothes! At the time I’m writing this, we’re in the middle of a world wide lock-down and many people find themselves blocked at home. So I decided to propose miniature sewing as a way to pass your time. You can also involve the kids.

Fabric shops being closed, it might be difficult to find material for your human-sized sewing projects. But in the case of Barbie clothes it’s not a problem because those fabric scraps you have at home will do just fine!Your DIY Barbie clothes can be as complicated or as simple as you want. Maybe you want to copy your own existing clothes, or an outfit you saw in a film? You could do clothes inspired by a fashion decade. Or imitate the style of a famous person. Why not try miniature Pattern Magic!

Whatever you choose, I prepared a PDF with the basic pattern -set to get you started. It works both for the old- and new Barbie doll (you know they changed the body shape a bit in the 2000’s). The file is at the Downloads-section in the side-panel – or at the bottom if you’re on mobile.

I drafted the patterns exactly like the human version, taking Barbie’s body measurements. If you’re interested in trying yourself, there’s the Basic Bodice pattern, the Dartless Bodice and the Basic Skirt block tutorial.

To give you some ideas for Barbie clothes, this tutorial will illustrate how to use the basic patterns. Naturally, the same instructions are good for human clothes as well if you change the measurements. 😀

DIY Evening Dresses for Barbie

Let’s kick off the tour of Barbie clothes then! I’ll show you first how to draft 2 different panel dress patterns. By changing the profile of the panel and the length of the dress, you can make more variations with the same idea.

Mermaid Dress

If you’ve seen the mermaid skirt in my Panel Skirt tutorial, this will look familiar.

Begin by copying the whole basic bodice pattern, then

1. Continue the c.front, side seams and c.back line all the way down. Barbie measures 18 cm from waist down, so make the gown a bit longer than that.

Draw also a line from the tip of the waist darts down.

2. Draft the upper part of the dress. This one will be a strapless dress, so separate the shape of the bodice. I made the neckline quite straight, because it’s easier to sew that way. But if want more challenge, try a sweetheart shape.

The back has a shallow V-shape.

To avoid gaping, enlarge the bust dart slightly. Otherwise the panels follow the darts. You can carve some more below the bust area.

3. Then there’s the skirt. Draft the panels so that the dress is a bit more narrow around the knee-level (10 cm from waist down). You can make the back of the skirt longer like I did. The c.front will be cut on fold. I colored the front side panel here to make it easier to see.

Copy the pattern pieces and check that the seams that will be sewn together match in length and that the hemline and neckline run smoothly between the pieces.

The curves should also be identical below the knee, except for the train. So you can start from the front piece and copy the curve to the front side panel and from that to the back side panel.

Here they are:

To finish the neckline you can either make a facing or just line the whole dress. In this picture you can see the pieces I cut. I left 0.5cm seam allowance.

And here she is with her Mermaid Dress.

Flared Panel Dress

Here’s another example of a panel dress. The starting point is exactly the same as for the mermaid dress, so let’s continue from point 3.

3. This time, the shape is easier to draft: straight! You can go as flared as you want. I extended even at the c.front, but to be able to cut on fold, the line continues all the way up.

Copy the panels.

Make the same checks as with the previous dress. Especially the hemline will need some blending. Correct the front piece so that there’s a 90° angle both at the top and bottom, or you’ll find angles when you cut on fold.

The final pattern pieces:

My fabric was a bit too heavy weight for this project, so I found it useful to top stitch all the seams to flatten the seam allowance. This ended up creating nice structure, too.

Here’s Barbie in her shiny new dress.

Balloon Skirt Dress

This dress is quite retro. Had I chosen a taffeta fabric, it would’ve been so 80’s!

There will be a seam at the waistline, so we can use the bodice pattern for the top and skirt pattern for the skirt. You can also make separates if you wish.

Top

1. For the top, you’ll need to do this simple dart rotation to unite the two darts. If you’re interested to learn more about dart manipulation, have a look at this tutorial.

When sewing miniature clothes, it’s best to get rid of all extra darts to make things more simple. While you do need the front dart, the back dart can be eliminated as seen in the picture!

2. Re-draw the front dart so that it starts about 0.5cm under the bust point.

Draw the new neckline: It’s a bit wider than the original. You can also lower the underarm section and eliminate the ease from the back shoulder slope.

Then correct the waistline so that there won’t be an angle around the side seam.

3. These are the final pattern pieces. Control that the neckline, armscye and waistline run smoothly between the front and back pieces.

Just a few tips on sewing the top.

I found that the easiest way to finish the necklines and armscye is to just line the whole thing. I cut the pieces twice and first worked on them separately: closed the shoulder seams and sewed the darts.

Then I sewed the two of them together at the neckline and armscyes.

1. Here you can see a tiny seam allowance, but in reality it was 0.5cm when I started. I trimmed it afterwards.

2. In this picture you can see the same thing, but right side up after ironing.

After this I just closed the sideseams and the top was pretty much ready.

If you leave just 0.5cm of extra at the c.back seam, you can create a tiny overlap to add a snap or velcro closure. Barbie has such a big head that in most cases it seems impossible to Not have an opening somewhere.

Balloon Skirt

Copy the basic skirt pattern. The final skirt will be a bit shorter than it looks on paper so take this into account.

1. Divide both the front and back piece in 3 sections at the hemline and then move the darts so that they match with the line that is closer to the centre.

Tape or glue the front and back piece next to each other on a piece of paper so that there is 1.5cm between them at the hemline, as shown in the picture.

Separate the sections by cutting along the lines you drew.

2. Tape or glue the sections so that there is always 1.5cm distance between them at the hemline and 0.5cm at the waistline (or dart point). Finally add 0.7cm of flare at c.front and c.back.

You can make the balloon skirt either by gathering the fabric both at the top and the bottom, or as done here, gathering at the top and sewing folds at the bottom. If you choose the gathering method, your pattern is ready. But if you want to do folds, continue as shown here:

3. Draw little darts at the hemline. One between each section. Don’t cut yet, because you’ll get the exact shape only by folding the darts before cutting.

4. The hemline should be something like this after you’ve folded and cut. Try to avoid angles between the folds. Mark the side seam at the waistline and the hipline level at c.back so you’ll know where the back opening ends.

When you gather the waistline, just match it with the top.

Here are two pictures to illustrate how the bottom would be sewn. As you can see, I didn’t close the darts completely.

To finish the skirt, I made a pencil skirt as a lining, using the basic skirt pattern as it is, but shortening it by about 2cm. Then I united the hemlines of both skirts. As a result, the lining pulls the balloon skirt upward so that it maintains the shape.

The dress!

Layered Skirt and a V-neck Top

I was trying to find fun and interesting Barbie clothes to show you. As I said earlier, these instructions work also for your own clothes. This next idea is for a separate skirt and top.

Gathered V-Neck Top

1. Unite the darts and rotate towards the c.front. This volume will then be gathered. Place a notch where the gathering starts. Unfortunately in miniature size the volume remains so small, that it doesn’t show much.

Get rid of the back dart as before.

2. Draw the V-neckline ending at the underarm line, and the new, round c.front line. I also changed the armscye line shape.

Correct the waistline.

3. You should end up with something like this. Check the pattern pieces as usual.

Layered Skirt

1. This is an asymmetrical skirt so begin by copying both left and right sides of the basic skirt pattern. To be able to unite the c.back, fill the gap at the waistline and then compensate by increasing the dart volume.

2. Turn the dart volume into flare as shown in the picture.

3. Add even more flare at the side seam. In this example 1.5cm at each side, front and back.

This is the starting point. Now let’s draft the layers.

4. The idea of this skirt is that the layers continue around the skirt, becoming longer each round. You can make as many rounds as you prefer with the same idea. Add some extra flare to the sides so that the top layers are wider than the ones below.

End the final layer in the middle of c.front to get a symmetrical hemline.

5. Here are the pattern pieces. I united the uppermost layer (pink) at the side seam, but especially if you’re making this in human-size, separate the pieces to maintain grainline at c.back, too.

There’s an opening on the left side. Add notches to each piece at hipline.

You can make a little waistband to finish the waistline.

Here is Barbie with the new outfit.

Measuring Correctly: 18-inch Doll Clothing Patterns 

This article is so helpful!!

Doll clothes patterns can be adjusted before cutting, to
ensure a perfect fit for a variety of dolls. You can easily see size
differences by comparing the measurements of three popular 18-inch dolls:

Madame Alexander ‘Girlz’

American Girl Dolls

Gotz ‘Precious Day Collection’ 


The lines drawn on the dolls in the photo below show
exactly where to measure your dolls.

Bust
and Shoulders: One obvious difference among the three dolls is the bust
measurement, which is quite a bit larger on the Gotz doll. But, her
larger bust line is really caused by the width of her shoulders. The
distance around her shoulders is a full inch larger than the American
Girl doll… and 1-5/8 inches larger than the Madame Alexander doll.

 Sleeve
Length: The Madame Alexander doll has slightly longer arms, but because
her shoulders are narrower, her sleeve length is almost identical to
the American Girl doll. And, don’t forget the Gotz doll’s wide
shoulders. Even though the Gotz arms are the same length as the American
Girl, you have to increase her sleeve length if you don’t increase the
width of the shoulders on the doll clothes patterns.The American Girl doll has bigger hips and a more rounded bottom. She
also has a shorter, thicker neck than the other dolls. When you’re
making tight pants or boots, remember the Gotz doll has larger, 5-1/2
inch calves. (Although it’s not shown here, the older American Girl
dolls also have 5-1/2 inch calves.) All the dolls’ heads and feet are almost identical in size. Their inseams are similar enough to make their pant lengths the same.

So, even if you’re sewing for just one doll, always measure your doll. Then, measure the doll clothes patterns and
compare each area. If you’re making doll clothes to sell, or if you own
several different 18-inch dolls, you’ll need to make a few alterations
so the clothes will fit all the various dolls. Begin by using this
chart.

 


For all of the dolls to wear the same clothes, cut the doll clothes patterns
large enough to fit the biggest measurement in each body area. For
example, make sure the bust fits a doll that measures 12-1/8 inches; the
waist 10-1/2 inches; and the hips 12-1/4 inches. Remember to add a
small amount to each measurement for ‘ease,’ unless you want the dolls’ clothes to be skin-tight.

Easy Doll Clothes Patterns – Shirt, Shorts and Skirt – Free!

New easy (and free!) doll clothes patterns for the Dress Up Bunch!

I redesigned the Play Clothes pattern for the Dress Up Bunch to get rid of the set-in sleeves and fussy collar facing on the shirt. Yay! The new shirt is so much easier to make!

These are the basic doll clothes patterns that are included with all of the human dolls so I was looking at replacing it in Every Single Doll Pattern – which would take forever. Instead I decided to just make it free for everyone!

Download the pattern pieces here.

Click here to jump to the skirt pattern.

Use 1/4″ for all seam allowances unless otherwise noted.

Doll Shirt Pattern

Step 1

Join the 2 shirt pattern pieces into one and cut it out. Place the shirt and shirt lining fabric right sides together and cut the single shirt pattern piece out of them at the same time. That way the pieces lines up perfectly. 🙂 .

It’s a weird-looking pattern. Here are some quick labels to help you make sense of it.

Please note! This pattern only works with non-directional fabric. Since it’s all one piece, whatever is right side up on the front will be upside down on the back – so choose something that looks good both ways. Those fizzy, swirly polkadots are from the perfectly-named Pop collection from Timeless Treasures, and the shirt lining and shorts are in my favorite Sketch.

Step 2

Sew the main shirt and lining (right sides together) up one front side, around the neck, and down the other side. Clip the curves and corners.

This video has tips for handling tight curves, and also info on the how and why of clipping curves.

Step 3

Turn the shirt right side out.

Carefully smooth out the curve around the neck, poke out the corners, and press. From this point on you’ll treat the two layers of fabric as one.

Step 4

Hem the sleeves. Turn up the raw edge 1/4” and press. Turn it up another 1/4” and press. Stitch the hem in place.

You can hem to the outside, so the contrasting lining shows (like I did) or hem to the inside for a more traditional finish.

Here’s a closer look at one of my sleeve hems.

Here’s a little trick so you don’t have to measure that skinny 1/4 inch. Sew the two layers together 1/4” from the raw edge. Use that stitching line as a guide for turning up the first 1/4.” No measuring! Then turn the second 1/4” and stitch.

Step 5

With the shirt inside out, sew the underarm/side seam.

Start sewing at the armhole so that edge is perfectly lined up and finish at the shirt bottom. Any unevenness there will be hidden once it’s hemmed. Clip the seam allowance in the curve.

Step 6

Turn the shirt right side out and press.

Almost finished!

Step 7

Hem the shirt bottom the same way you did the sleeves in Step 4.

Step 8

Press everything and add three snaps. I like using these pretty colored snaps.

For the youngest doll-owners you might want to use velcro instead. I have special skinny hook & loop tape ideal for doll clothes in the shop. And if you’re extra fancy you can use buttons. 🙂

Finished! But your doll can’t just wear a shirt!

You can find instructions for a super easy doll skirt here. 

Doll Shorts Pattern

Step 1

Cut out two shorts pieces. Unlike the shirt – this fabric can be directional. 🙂

Hem the bottom of the two shorts pieces. Turn the raw edge up 1/2″ and press. Turn it up another 1/2″ and press. Stitch the hem in place.

Step 2

Sew the center back seam using 1/4″ seam allowance.

If you want critters with tails to be able to wear the shorts, leave the tail opening (as marked on the pattern piece) unstitched. Make sure to backstitch at the top and bottom of the opening.

Step 3

Press the center back seam open.

If you are leaving a tail opening, stitch a box around the opening to stabilize it.

Step 4

Start to make the casing for the elastic. Turn the raw edge at the top of the shorts down 1/2″. Press. Turn it down another 1/2″. Press.

Don’t sew this yet. It’s just easier to measure and press when it’s one flat piece.

Step 5

Unfold the casing creases you made in Step 4.

Match up the center front edges and sew, using 1/4″ seam allowance.

Step 6

Refold the casing creases and stitch it down almost all the way around the top of the shorts.

Leave a couple of inches open at the center back seam so you can get the elastic in.

Step 7

Cut a 12″ piece of 3/8″ elastic and thread it through the casing. Overlap the ends of the elastic 1 inch and sew them together. Slip the stitched elastic up into the casing and finish sewing the casing closed.

Watch this video for more info on using elastic in a waistband.

Step 8

Sew up the inseam/crotch of the shorts using 1/4″ seam allowance.

Press anything you can get to with the iron. 🙂

Finished!

And here’s a view from the back.

It’s Spot the Puppy wearing these and he likes to have room for his tail to wag. 🙂

So there you have it – three basic doll clothes patterns – all super easy and free. The shirt, skirt and shorts will fit any of the Dress Up Bunch dolls.

90,000 print and cut (155+ templates) 9,0001 Paper dolls with clothes is a great game for little girls. Cutting out a paper doll template is easy, and how many outfits you can think of! The history of the paper doll goes back a long way. In the old days, not every parent could allow their child to buy toys, and real dolls were quite expensive, as they were made by hand.

So they found a simple way out – they drew paper dolls for cutting. With clothes and various little things (furniture, accessories, pets) – such a doll could always be different, even a secular lady or a princess, even an ordinary servant or slave.In addition to the paper doll itself, they drew a friend or pet, a house or a room, or maybe a whole paper castle.

This article contains the most popular pictures of paper dolls: Barbie, Bratz, Winx, kids and even animals. We have selected not only dolls of different eras, but also kitty dolls, in national costumes, babies. Also, girls will be delighted with paper princess dolls from Disney cartoons.

Why paper dolls are so popular

Despite the fact that our children have everything they need for development – constructors, puzzles, interactive toys and technical innovations – dolls with clothes cut from paper remain at the peak of popularity.

  • Girls can sit for hours creating new outfits and fashion accessories for paper dolls. It’s so fun and exciting! And most importantly, it gives room for creativity, because the costs are minimal – a sheet of white paper and pencils.
  • Different models of clothes can be borrowed from other dolls, making up the necessary toy wardrobe.
  • Real Bratz or Barbie dolls, Winx or Monster High have a very meager set of clothes, since not every girl knows how to sew, and purchased outfits are quite expensive.Paper models, on the other hand, can have hundreds of bright and original outfits that a girl can come up with on her own or copy from a fashion magazine.

Paper dolls can be printed both on plain white paper, and then glued onto cardboard, or immediately use thick paper. You just need to print the dolls and cut them out – and a new game “Dress the doll!” ready! And how many different outfits you can think of for her!

Paper for cutting

Paper dolls are a game from our childhood.Of course, it is not surprising that every modern girl has taken over from her mother an interest in paper beauties.

To keep the clothes on the doll and not fall off, on the shoulders, as well as on the waist and, if possible, on the hips, special “folds” should be made. For panties and shorts, folds are made on the hips and legs.

These cute baby dolls are just like children! You can play with them, draw them a beautiful bed, clothes and fluffy pets. But there is one thing: these paper toys are short-lived, even if glued to thick cardboard.They cannot be bathed, planted or fed (like, for example, real dolls). But, nevertheless, interest in such toys does not fade away. Patterns of paper dolls for cutting “Toddlers”:

Why are dolls so popular?

Paper dolls, for which you can cut a variety of outfits, quickly conquered Soviet girls. The thing is, they combined the beauty of the game and accessibility. Not every family could afford toys, but dolls could always be drawn.

Girls cut them out of magazines and made dresses for them themselves.Of course, teachers and parents encouraged this. This is how the children developed taste, artistic skills, and the ability to communicate, which is brought up in the process of role-playing games. In a word, everyone liked the games with paper dolls for their beauty and the absence of any flaws.

A bit of history

The first commercial production of paper dolls dates back to 1810. A well-known British factory has released a cutout kit called “Little Funny”. The audience accepted the idea with interest, and the process was put on stream.Exactly two years later, the American version of the paper dolls, The Story and Adventures of Little Henry, was released. It is noteworthy that this version of the game was designed for children of both sexes.

The success of the first editions of “paper stories” was the beginning of the mass production of albums with various cutouts. Factories from different countries began to release albums for paper modeling with a variety of shapes for cutting. Some suggested cutting out clothes and a doll, others – to assemble the heroes piece by piece from scratch.

In 1959, the first paper doll, printed in a non-theme album, appeared in the major women’s magazine Godey`s Lady`s Book. The publishers have attached a ready-made suit and evening dress to it. The demand for the magazine has increased significantly. Later, the idea was taken up by other periodicals, and paper dolls for cutting began to appear regularly in the pages of newspapers and magazines.

What kind of dolls are there?

There are several types of paper dolls:

  1. Collectible
    .As a rule, these are images of various personalities. They are almost never used for games.
  2. Bobbleheads
    . These dolls are usually large; most often they are made on cardboard, since they are intended for the smallest.
  3. Standard
    . These are ordinary dolls that every Soviet girl had. They are present on the shelves to this day.
  4. Barbie
    . Slim waist, long legs and chic hair. These dolls usually come with the most beautiful cutout outfits.
  5. Princess
    . Most often these are famous Disney characters. Standard recognizable suits are cut for them.
  6. Popular Modern Heroes
    . So, recently all records were broken by paper cutting kits with the Winx fairies.

Of course, cut kits can be different; this is just a conventional division. However, most dolls can be classified into these groups.

Dolls can be made of paper or cardboard.However, they are often glossy or shiny. We advise you to pay attention to interesting textures of papers like corrugation and velvet if you are going to cut out outfits for dolls with your own hands and decorate them additionally.

Templates

Little girls are more interested in playing with large dolls of a large size and with a minimum set of costumes. They will love figurines of babies and dolls, as well as outfits that are attached to large fixing strips. Older girls prefer dolls that can be dressed up in chic ballroom or stylish cocktail dresses, diluted with handbags and shoes.In addition, they are always delighted with the recognizable heroines from their favorite cartoons. All of this is also included in the cutout template kits that we have prepared for you.

You can choose any of the presented stencils, print paper dolls and outfits on one sheet, or split the image in a graphic editor and output each figure to the printer separately. Pictures are clickable, they are all in good quality.

Why are paper dolls so popular?

Almost every girl in our yard had paper dolls with clothes to cut out.We went with whole folders of colorful outfits and cardboard dolls. Not every mother could afford to buy an expensive doll in a store, but cardboard beauties with clothes for cutting were available.

We also made new clothes for paper dolls ourselves. Using glossy magazines and the doll itself as a template, we made beautiful outfits for our dolls.

This simple toy was for both little girls and high school girls who happily helped the kids to draw new outfits.

From the history of the paper doll

The history of the paper doll is quite interesting. In 1791, a new toy invention called the “English Doll” appeared in England. It was a figurine of a doll 20 cm high and a set of clothes for her. The doll had underwear, a corset, dresses and, of course, hats.

It can be assumed that the first paper dolls with clothes were visual aids of the milliners of the 18th century, and only a century later the doll with paper clothes went on sale as an educational toy for girls.The first printed doll with clothes came out in 1810 and was called Little Funny.

And after 20 years, toys in the form of dolls with clothes were available at a price to a wide range of buyers. Dolls for boys and girls, dolls with clothes, noble ladies and princesses with outfits for cutting, animals with clothes – a wide range of such toys has firmly entered the life of children.

In 1912-13, three-dimensional paper dolls with clothes appeared. As time went on, fashion changed and clothes for paper dolls changed.

A guild of paper doll artists (The Original Paper Doll Artists Guild, abbreviated as OPDAG) was created, which successfully operates to this day publishes for fans of paper dolls, plus its own magazine called Paper Doll Studio Magazine.

Paper dolls in elegant boxes, sets of postcards with dolls, albums with clothes for paper beauties. Periodicals kept up with factories. In every magazine one could find dolls with paper clothes for her.

Variants of paper dolls

Among the variety of paper dolls, several types can be distinguished:

How to play with a paper doll

The process of playing paper dolls always consists of 2 main parts.

1 is the carving of the doll itself and its clothes. As a rule, the doll is printed on thick cardboard and is colored on both sides. The clothes for the paper beauty have only 1 colored side and small white flaps with which it is fixed to the doll.

Part 2 – the game itself. The child changes the doll to suit his taste and role. One set can contain clothes for several different seasons of the year, or it can only consist of elegant dresses (as in sets with princesses).

Sets with paper dolls are popular with many children. However, parents should understand that even a large set of clothes for a paper doll will soon get bored and the child may ask to buy a new doll.

In this regard, modern children are very lucky.Now there is the Internet, where you can find thousands of different options for paper dolls with clothes to cut out. You just need to save the picture you like and print the desired sheet.

In addition, paper furniture for dolls can be downloaded and printed. This is also a very exciting activity for children.

We hope that your child will also like paper dolls with clothes!

For the first time, paper dolls with clothes for carving appeared in the 18th century, but in those distant times they were used only by milliners, who were comfortable using these affordable inexpensive dolls to demonstrate new models of hats and clothes.

And then, at the beginning of the 19th century, paper dolls with clothes became available for girls, who cut dolls and clothes for them, thus, from an early age, having the opportunity to be creative.

In the 1830s, the American firm McLoughlin Brothers created many affordable children’s paper dolls and cutout clothes. Dolls with clothes were sold for only a few cents, and therefore became available to most girls.

Following the McLoughlin Brothers, other companies began to print paper dolls.True, not all of their products had affordable prices. For example, dolls from the German company Raphael Tuck & Sons Publishing Co. were quite expensive, because they were printed on thick paper, in excellent quality and packed in colorful envelope boxes.

These dolls were collapsible, the head of the dolls was removed in order to make it easier for girls to change clothes. The dolls were produced in several sizes – large 20-35 cm in height, and small “postcard” versions that could be cut out and, if desired, used as postcards.

During the war, there was no time for dolls, and no one dealt with paper dolls. But after the war, the dolls returned again and played an important role, because everywhere there was devastation, there was a lack of the most elementary, including toys for children, and the production of paper dolls could be set up very quickly and with minimal investment.

Soon after, The Original Paper Doll Artists Guild (OPDAG) was created, which successfully works to this day for paper doll fans, plus its own magazine called Paper Doll Studio Magazine.

Soviet paper dolls with clothes to cut

There was a great idea in the USSR, but there was a lack of elementary things, including children’s things, children’s toys. Therefore, paper dolls with clothes were the most affordable joy for little Soviet girls.

Dolls were published in special books, and also printed in magazines.First of all, for children, such as “Funny Pictures”, as well as in magazines for women “Rabotnitsa”, “Peasant”. Later, paper dolls began to be sold in the form of quality books, from which it was necessary to cut out the doll itself and its clothes along the contours.

Particularly caring parents themselves drew and cut dolls, new dresses, skirts, boots for dolls, thanks to this the girls had a huge wardrobe for their favorite dolls!

Today, the Celestial Empire industry produces millions of dolls, from small bobbleheads to 70 centimeter BJD dolls, one shoe for which can cost more than a pair of shoes for a real girl.Despite this, paper dolls are still with us and are not going to go down in history, because they have many advantages!

Advantages of paper dolls


One of the main advantages of a paper doll is its lightness and elegance.

Countless outfits can be created for paper dolls. This does not require much time from you, and from the point of view of money, it is an affordable hobby that does not require financial investments.

Making outfits for a paper doll is a real flight of creativity in which you can try yourself as a fashion designer.However, at first, you can simply redraw clothes from glossy paper magazines and fashion portals on the Internet.

A doll can be created without hair, then, in addition to outfits, you can also change her hairstyles by making wigs. Of course, there are wigs for ordinary dolls, for BJD, Moxie Teenz, but their wigs cannot be made by yourself, and they are not so cheap.

If you wish, it is easy to create a whole world for your favorite paper doll – a house, a dacha, a car, an office, or even a servant.At the same time, a paper princess, even if she has her own palace, will not take up much space in the apartment. It can be stored in a bulky folder, and for ordinary plastic dolls, if they have their own palace, they will have to separate a corner in the room, or the whole room.

Despite the variety of plastic dolls, paper dolls are still liked by children and parents. Of course, the child feels the greatest affection for toys that he made with his own hands. Therefore, you can buy in the store or print cutouts or draw a doll out of paper. Such a toy can become an interior decoration, a hero of a fairy tale, as well as an independent character living his own life.

How to make a paper doll

Usually a paper doll does not require any special tools:

  • paper;
  • scissors;
  • glue / tape;
  • if it needs to be colored, pencils, paints, felt-tip pens;
  • Optionally add beads, rhinestones, other decorations for outfits.

To print a template at home, you need a color or black and white printer. In the latter case, pencils of skin color will not be superfluous to make the toy as realistic as possible.

Cutting templates

Finished prints are one of the easiest ways. It is enough to carefully cut everything out, if necessary, glue the accidentally damaged areas with glue or tape, and the toy is ready. The main question is which template to choose. It all depends on personal preference. The doll can represent a person of any age, from a child to an adult. The drawing, individual details of the appearance and the style of the costume may also vary.A great way to introduce a child to the peculiarities of culture in different eras is to make dolls together, for example, in the style of the Middle Ages, retro, modern.

As for the doll itself, its appearance cannot always be tied to a specific era. Therefore, you can safely make outfits for her to your taste.

DIY paper doll

A self-drawn toy is a simple craft, even if your drawing skills are not brilliant. The main thing is to take standard geometric shapes as a basis, smooth out the corners, slightly change the proportions and, more importantly, make the lines thin enough to make it easier to erase.Then the finished version will have a neater look without bold outlines. As for making crafts of different genders, the difference in physique depends on the estimated age of the toy.

Doll girl

For her you will need:

  • white paper;
  • pencil;
  • eraser;
  • optional gel pens;
  • pencils, pastels for coloring.

It is best to start drawing from the head, then the torso, legs, arms.

Before painting, it is necessary to outline the relief with the help of shadows and highlights to make the toy look more realistic.

To do this, you need to decide from which side the light will fall and place the shadows. They can be marked with a simple pencil, orange, or you can choose a fairly dark shade of a flesh-colored pencil. If necessary, some contours can be duplicated with the desired shade of a gel pen, especially for hair, when you need to give them texture, volume, and highlight specific strands.

Pay attention! When choosing a hairstyle, it is best to stick to simple styling and hairstyles, since it is inconvenient to cut thin curved curls.

In terms of coloring, it is better to give preference to simple pencils or pastels because felt-tip pens give a flat, unrealistic shade that cannot be adjusted, and watercolors make the paper soggy. As a finishing touch, draw the underwear and proceed to the back according to the same principles. Then it remains to glue the halves and think about clothes for the toy.

Doll boy

The boy’s body will have a narrower pelvis, wider shoulders than the girl’s.

Here we must not overdo it, so as not to get a toy with a childish face, but with a too masculine figure. As for the details of the face, the eyes behind both dolls will be equally expressive, the lips can be of different sizes, but usually in girls they are distinguished with a brighter red or pink tint. Also, do not forget about the blush on the cheeks. The nose and eyebrows are drawn only after the eyes and mouth.If the puppet character wears glasses, they are drawn after the hairstyle. By the height of the boy, you can perform a little higher than the girl; also in the male version, the feet should be larger.

Paper Dolls

People may prefer dolls in different styles, but more often than not they do the most popular ones with their own hands, such as Lol or Barbie.

Lol

This cute doll is attractive to many girls, because on the one hand, her proportions and face are very childish, but on the other hand, she can have a variety of fashion accessories, clothes, trendy hairstyles, hair color.Since this is a collection, every girl dreams of collecting it completely, but it is very expensive to acquire all of them, so you should go the other way – make a Lol doll with your own hands. There are two options.

  1. Use a ready-made paper set, in which the doll is presented with a set of clothes. Moreover, she herself is located inside special paper layers that make up various accessories.
  2. Nothing prevents you from using a template for coloring, cut out at least 7 circles in which different images for the doll will be presented.

Barbie

Surprisingly, no matter how fashion changes, Barbie is still considered one of the most popular. Of course, her looks have changed over time, from a tall, slender blonde with long hair and blue eyes, many other variations have appeared. However, the general concept remains the same.

When creating a paper Barbie, you need to take into account that regardless of the model, its features should be slim, sophisticated.

Outlines are indicated with a simple pencil with light lines. For coloring it is better to use pastels or colored pencils. It is better to start painting with the face. It must certainly be oval; if you wish, you can add blush to the cheeks. To make the pencil look as natural as possible, you can shade it with a piece of cotton wool or paper. Most often, Barbie’s hair is drawn quite long and thick.

Attention! The hairstyle can be copied from the original, but in a pencil version. It will look more impressive if you make the strands a little wavy.

Next, you need to designate the eyes, then the eyebrows, lips. The eyelashes on the upper eyelid should be longer than on the lower, and at the same time they should be quite thick. It is better to make the pupil small and pay more attention to the iris of the eye. Despite modern fashion, Barbie’s eyebrows are most often drawn in a straight or slightly arched shape.Lips of medium size with a neat shape are painted over most often with pink or crimson. The nose is usually in the form of a narrow droplet. If it is assumed that Barbie will have a whole wardrobe of various clothes, it still does not hurt to add some universal types of earrings, neck jewelry, possibly bracelets, rings to her ears.

Clothes for dolls

Even if initially a paper doll is made with clothes from a dozen outfits, sooner or later you want to pamper the doll with new dresses and costumes.Making them yourself is not difficult at all.

The simplest and most obvious way is to take an existing collection as a basis and slightly change it. For example, to make some dress less lush, add texture, pattern on the fabric (polka dots, checkerboard or stripes), you can change the length of the skirt, the width of the straps at the tops, draw fasteners and belts on sweaters and dresses. Even small changes in the silhouette of clothes, colors, coupled with the addition of accessories, bring a lot of variety.

Factories from different countries began to release albums for paper modeling with a variety of shapes for cutting. Some suggested cutting out clothes and a doll, others – to assemble the heroes piece by piece from scratch.
