May Paper Doll - Set 3

Seems like Monday is the ideal day for me to post these May wardrobe sheets! I really didn't plan it that way but it's working out nicely.


Not a whole lot to say about this round.  "Mom" is a retro dress & apron.  "Camera" is a very artsy black turtle neck and camera -- I'm super happy with how that camera came out! For "stack" I have a layered shirt and a layered necklace.  "Balloon" features a pattern from Julia Dreams -- a design shop I like quite a bit.  "Grass" is a graphic skirt....although I sort of wish I had gone Hawaiian with that instead! "Market" is a light jacket and shopping bag.  And finally, "purple" is a tropical sarong and top.  That one doesn't mean a whole lot in black and white! There are also a couple of hairstyles and a pair of shorts to round it out.

And that's it! I'll work on the next set and get that up soon.

May Paper Doll - Set 2

Happy Monday! I hope all of the moms who celebrate Mother's Day had a quiet, relaxing day! I spent the day with my parents, all of my grandparents, and my sister and her family.

Today's set covers May 7 through 12.  The themes this time were: box, medicine, patio, city, stork, and tea.


For "box", I went with a simple box pleat skirt for mix & match options.  "Medicine" is a set of scrubs.  "Patio" is a maxi skirt with fun palm leaves.  "City" was challenging - I went with a bright jumpsuit and dark sunglasses.  "Stork" is a patterned skirt.  And "tea" also features a patterned skirt.

I'll get started on Set 3 and get that up as soon as I can!

May Paper Doll - Set 1

Happy May everyone! I wanted to get this up on Friday but it didn't happen.  There's a TON of stuff I'm working on at the moment -- much of it paper doll related but not blog-worthy yet.

Today's set is the first wardrobe sheet for May.  As promised, I went back to the January doll and you can find that here. Here's the list of themes for this month:

As with all of the drawing prompts, this set is from @ellolovey on Instagram and Facebook.


For this set, I'm tackling the first six themes: simple, robot, self-love, galaxy, and key.



"Simple" is sleeveless dress.  "Robot" is some funky leggings and a graphic t-shirt.  "Self-love" was tough.  I decided to put some lilacs (my favorite flower) on a blouse.  "Galaxy" was fun! The black and white version is plain and boring, but the color was came out great! "Key" features a statement necklace. And "veggies" is a practical apron for gardening.

This may mix and match with some of the January sets, too!

I'll have another set up & ready as soon as I can!

April Paper Doll - Set 5

I realize it's the first day of May but I had ONE more April sheet to share before moving on! This one is a bit haphazard.  If you view all five sheets as part of a whole, it's not too bad.



The themes this time were TOUGH! First up, "technology." I went with a futuristic metal and soft feminine dress with purple spiky hair.  For "fierce" I went with a gold animal print gown.  "Astronomy" is a purple jacket and telescope.  "Your day" I interpreted as a way I would spend my day - ideally, in a floral peasant shirt, jeans, with a book. "Progress" was another tough one. I made a dress that looks like stairs or a rising bar graph.  And finally, "rise" is a mod sunrise inspired dress.  The white boots/skirt combo would fit under that sunrise dress to complete the mod look.

Now it's on to May! I'll shoot for Friday.  I have a busy week ahead of me so I'll do my best. FOUR months behind me!! Pretty amazing!
