paper doll – Edwardiana

paper dolls — Danielle on September 3, 2012 at 4:27 pm

It has been a long time since I’ve created a paper doll for my own amusement, so I took advantage of the last few slow-work weeks of summer to draw a doll I’ve been wanting to make for ages. This is inspired by Edwardian-era women’s clothing, and I enjoyed rendering the exaggerated curves and muted colours. This doll is a bit different than others I’ve made as I’ve knocked out the lines using sepia tones.

This doll is available for purchase as a high-resolution printable PDF for $12.




A PDF is a high-quality printable file. Unlike the images found on the web, there is clarity of detail which reproduces beautifully in print. Purchase this paper doll, and you can print her out as many times as you like for personal use – to cut out, play with and display.

    1. This is so awesome, Danielle!! It reminds me of a Tom Tierney colouring book of Edwardian outfits I had when I was a child. Those sweeping silhouettes can’t be beat.

    7. She’s beautiful. I love the combination of your very modern art style with the historical costumes.

Several doll collectors and I have an fb page “Downton Corner” where we share things to do with the PBS show Downton Abbey and most things from the Edwardian Era — I accidentally found your paper dolls during a search for Edwardian Era pictures…. love your paper dolls and have posted info on our fb page – hope it drums up business for you!
