A Taste of the Orient


I think it's because I would really really really like a kimono myself that I've been dreaming about them. Since I don't think I'll be getting one anytime soon, I thought the next best thing would be to give Pippa, Imogen and Anna their own kimonos.

I've had a lot of fun designing these, and especially playing with the patterns and colours. I could really go on forever, but I thought instead that it was time to share them with you. For those of you who own your own Pippa, Imogen or Anna, you can download the kimono of your choice to give "the girls" a new outfit for dressing up.

I still have more to come for these paper dolls. In particular, they are going to need some summer clothes soon, and then I have a few ideas and surprises turning about in my head. But for the moment, I just felt that a kimono is a lovely between the season type of ensemble.

I hope you will enjoy them!

Gretchen! I meant to send you an email on Saturday to tell you that my lovely paper dolls arrived safely. Well, I think they're lovely! You've wrapped them so beautifully, aren't you sweet?! I can't wait to see the girls so I can present them to them! Thank-you, thank-you! I will be printing off these goodies so they can play some more.

Happy Day to you and your sweethearts!

Sweet! I love the green one. I see how you could have a hard time stopping esp with all the color combos available.
