The Eclectic Wardrobe of Josephine - Special Edition

For those of you who subscribe to Paper Doll Studio Magazine (and if you don't, check it out here), you've already seen this set.  For those of you who haven't, here's a new Josephine!

The theme for the current Paper Doll Studio magazine was Project Paper Doll, featuring original designs by paper doll artists as well as a dress-a-doll.  Both were really fun to work on!

I knew when I saw the theme that I wanted to adapt Josephine to the theme.  At the time, Josephine was a very new project & I just HAD to make more!

At the time, I had acquired some beautiful digital papers and wanted to use those.  I chose a soft pink & brown pattern collection because I loved the colors.  These aren't the most elaborate or original fashions & I'm ok with that.

So all of the clothes here will fit the other Josephine paper doll, and all of those outfits will fit this one (with the exception of the crop tops from page 11 - they just wouldn't look right!).

It's getting to the point where I could collect Josephine into a book.  I'm trying to decide the best way to do that.  I might go with multiple volumes - one of contemporary clothing like these, one of fantasy clothing like the Steampunk set, maybe one of formal wear.... Thoughts?


  1. I don't know what to tell you about the best way to adapt the paper doll to book form. I do think I would do a cost analysis based on your time and on what the books would each be individually priced at.

  2. this is so lovely! i love the variety of blouses!

    i think a multi-volume could be interesting. i like the idea of separating the fantasy from the contemporary. since i know you are doing them through lulu/amazon, there's no penalty for more than one book on your side (no cost but time and labor, really). if you were having to actually print them yourself, that might be different.

    1. At the moment, the print-on-demand model really works well for me. It may get to a point where I have the time, motivation, and money to further explore printing options. But that's not today.

      I think separating them out by theme might be the way to go...
