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.
