Review

There isn't a single outfit in this paper doll book that one could wear to the grocery store. Well, at a stretch, there is one, maybe, but they'd stare in my local Ralph's. That makes for a great paper doll book! Plus, can you imagine Greta Garbo going to the local grocer? Movies in the 1930s made no effort, nor saw any virtue, in showing real life. That made for great costumes and great paper dolls! My favorites form these film wonders are all from Mata Hari. An elegant gold and silver gown (with exposed shoulders) would be a nock-out in any era. One I'm going to commission from my private seamstress (don't I wish) is a brick reddish dress and matching coat dripping with strips of embroidery and jewels. High boots complete the outfit... love those high boots! Lastly, Mata Hari wore a simple black gown (complete with martini in hand) with neckline plunging to the waist. --Cornerstones, A Paper Doll Journal
