Tween Fashion Friday - Kourtney

Every June, I reflect on this whole blog thing. (I know it's the first of July.) If I'm still enjoying it, I keep at it.  When the day comes that I'm not enjoying it, I'll move on.  It's been 4 years of paper dolling and writing -- both of which I still love.

So today is not the day that I move on.

Instead, it's the day I introduce a new paper doll!

Here's a rough sketch of the new tween body type.  I'm not enthusiastic about the term "tween" but I'll use it anyway.  This is supposed to be a girl older than the toddlers and younger than the teen/adult body type.  I'm thinking maybe 12 years old or so. And I named this first one in the series after my son's best friend's sister.  Because why not?!

In the final iteration, I tried to make her a little less curvy than the initial sketch.  I also went with a more athletic set of undergarments -- maybe it's a bathing suit, maybe it's a sports bra.  Doesn't matter.  I just wanted something that felt age-appropriate.

Shoes might be a challenge.  I like to have items that are as mix-and-match as possible that fit with every doll of every skin tone.  I'm not sure I'll be able to pull that off with this new body type.  We'll see as it evolves.

Let me know what you think of the new tween doll! I'm excited to work on something new!
