Amabel A French Fashion Printable Paper Doll
A French Fashion Doll
by Lauren Welker
The French have been fashion leaders for hundreds of years!
French King Louis XIV was instrumental in setting the world’s taste for French fashion and style. He wanted all polite societies to know of French culture and taste, so he encouraged the use of fashion dolls, miniature dressed realistic dolls, to be sent all over the world.
These large dolls are very collectible as they are exact in detail and have scale copies of gowns, hats, shoes and accessories. Amabel is a line drawing allowing her to be colored to personal preference with crayons or colored pencils. This doll appeared in the Fall 1981 issue of Doll News.
