Hi, here is another picture and text run through, just a few helpful tips please do add your own helpful tips in the comments if you have any, Linda :) These paper dolls were printed out on a good quality bright white card, with a thickness of 275mic or 225gsm. Cut out all the pieces from your printed sheet with scissors, leaving a small amount of white waste around the edges.Picture A. This will protect your pieces till you are ready to cut out and use them, or wish to store them. A good pair of small curved scissors really helps with detailed cutting, as does holding the card piece you are cutting, and moving it through the curves and small variations, rather than just moving the scissors as you cut. I usually trim away the arm parts left on the body shape up to the vest camisole straps or rose neck border and then attach the arms behind the main body. The cutting is indicated with an arrow in picture A and shown during cutting on three different main bodies in Picture B. The skirt on the waisted Main bodices can be cut away into different pantie corset shapes.Picture B & Finished in C. The basic Bodice (shown in picture A, a striped Bodice) can be embellished with crepe paper added or used as an undergarment to further alterations, punch holes or piece where indicated on limbs, or to own preference on bodice and head and shoulders.
