Paper Dolls

During my childhood I played a lot with paper dolls like most girls, I guess. Perhaps that's why I feel so attracted to this fabric from Z & S fabrics.

Supongo que como yo la mayoría de niñas ha jugado con recortables durante su infancia. Quizás sea esa la razón por la cual me siento tan atraída hacia esta tela de Z&S fabrics.

So much that when I saw it, this image came to mind and I had to draw it inmediately (forgive the sh*tty sketch). Let's see what comes out of this...

Hasta tal punto que cuando la vi me vino la imagen de este vestido a la cabeza y tuve que dibujarlo inmediatamente ( perdonad el boceto de m***da). A ver que sale ...

Paper dolls were one of my favourite toys too! They always had so many more outfits than my real dolls. :-)

these fabrics are cuuuute! by the way, you brought back the background music! i like this song - really goes well with my slight hip hop phase at the moment, haha.

hope you're having a good weekend :)

The doll is lovely, she has such a cute face ! Unlike you said your sketch is great, wish I could draw like that :(

Charlotte said...

Ay! Allure, qué recuerdos! Me encantaban los recortables...

Allure said...

Tamara: mis conocimientos de costura no llegan tan lejos como para hacer un vestido...además la tela ha debido de agotarse.

Joanne: I didn't bring back any background music!! It's really weird 'cause you're not the first telling me that...I'll try to fix it.

Que amor el vestidito, y tu dibujo es muy bueno!
