    • Godey's lady's Book was probably the most influential women's magazine of its era.  Besides offering its readers needlework projects, recipes, hints on household care and women's romances, the magazine featured hand-tinted fold-outs showing the latest fashions.
    • From these pages Susan Johnston has created a set of seven fashion paper dolls, each with its own separate wardrobe--a collection of fifty costumes in all.  The dolls and costumes are rendered in full color, following the hand-tinted originals.  Among the unusual and striking fashions are a bathing suit of the period, a complete set of little girl's clothes, daytime dresses, winter attire, a riding costume, ball gowns, a large variety of hats, and even a wedding gown.  Cut out the dolls and their wardrobes, and you have a complete and authentic panorama of the clothes of this era.

      Reviews:

    • A wonderful book of paper dolls. I have one to cut and one book to keep complete. I have several Godey items. Dishes, books, embroidery pictures, etc. These will fit in perfectly.

    • Includes a child and several ladies as paper dolls. Printed on heavy cardstock. Styles of the era 1840-1854.

    • I loved the authenticity both of the dolls' features, which are the Victorian ideal, and the lovely, elaborate outfits.
