Item details

Paper Couture for the Summer Season 1931 and 1932. A Collection of Original Thirties Vintage Handmade Paper Doll Clothes.

Two pages from the design scrapbook of a New York fashion arts student, with twenty-one watercolor and cut-out pieces pasted to brown paper. The "thirties era" costumes range from casual to evening dress; bathing suit; French sailor inspired striped top and slacks (a la Chanel); kimono dressing gown and summer frocks. Envelope with a cut-out picture of steamer trunks at the top of one sheet.

Each mount measures: 13 ½” X 10”.

Good bright condition; the paper doll is not present; the edges where pages were once bound in an album are unevenly cut; a few of the clothes have lifted from the mount in places, but could be pressed down and re-glued.

Nostalgic paper ephemera. Very frameable. Inspiration for design or paper art projects. Related to the history of fashion, art education, sewing and textiles. SEE IMAGE!
