Ok, this might sound a little odd, but I’ve been wanting to make some paper dolls to share with you for a long time!
The explanation is quite simple. When I was little, I LOVED playing with paper dolls! I don’t think I still have my paper dolls but it was a large collection and I played with them on a daily basis. I loved the pretty little paper doll clothes and being able to change up the paper dolls dress as often as I wanted to.
So this Old Fashioned Paper Doll is a first here on Little House Living, but I’m hoping that if you like it you will tell me and we can make some more?
I decided to make this first doll with a pretty little prairie dress just because that’s one of my favorite time periods to study in history. I hope you like her and your little ones will enjoy her as much as I enjoyed my paper dolls when I was growing up.

Tips for Printing Paper Dolls
- Make sure you have plenty of ink in your printer or her clothes will have lines through them.
- Print the page on cardstock.
- Glue the doll onto another piece of cardstock or even onto some thin cardboard to make it more sturdy.
- Secure the “tabs” of the paper dolls clothing by adding a little tape to the “hinges”.
- You can always save the file for later if she does happen to get broken or if you want seconds of her dresses!
When I was growing up, my favorite paper dolls were the ones from Dover Publications. I would always save up my money for a beautiful set of paper dolls from them or I would be thrilled to find one of the little sets in my stocking for Christmas.
If your little ones love paper dolls, I would highly recommend checking out the ones from Dover. Another cool thing is that you can get “collector” paper dolls that are from a specific time period or for a specific person and I think those would be a great addition to a homeschool unit study!
