June Paper Doll - Set 1

It's time for another monthly paper doll set! This is the sixth month (!!!!!) of this project and I am amazed that it's still going! I have two commissions I'm working on, volunteering at the school, taking care of my kids & my grandmother, preparing for summer with the kids home, AND somehow managing to get this project done.  Pretty proud of myself at the moment.  I even found time to protest the atrocious school budget in my city.  But that's not relevant here...!

The June paper doll wardrobe is designed for the February doll.  I'm not trying to coordinate colors across months but I do think this set will mix rather well with February, even if that was accidental!

Again, as with the whole year, I'm working from prompts provided by @ellolovey ( Instagram and Facebook).  This is the whole list if you'd like to follow along.


First up is "donut" and I think that's fairly obvious! Then there's "trail" - I made a dress with a map of a portion of the Appalachian Trail. "Neon" is a very 80s cocktail dress and puffy, highlighted hair style. "Accessory" is a simple dress with an elaborate collar necklace & cuff bracelets. Next on the list is "strawberries" and that's a printed button down shirt with a cardigan.  And finally, "gardening" is a set of overalls, rainboots, and gloves.  I've noticed as the year goes by that some of the themes are reused -- and that's fine! It's great to think about the same idea in a different way.

I'll have the next set ready sometime next week! Enjoy!!
