Victoria's Walking Suit

Yesterday, we introduced you to our newest category and most fun project ever, an antique paper doll which we have made over for you, our readers.
Today, we are offering for your use for playtime with our Victoria Lacey™ paper doll her very fetching fur-trimmed walking suit with muff and feather plumed hat. We fell in love with this design straight off. Don't you just love the bell shaped curves to her skirt, and all the fancy topstitching details? Her lovely silk satin ruche fronted blouse underneath is such a lovely berry tone, perfect for our doll's coloring. And this is then set off with a rosette to her hat's folded brim.
We hope you'll enjoy all our PPSPlaytime™offerings, including our lovely Victoria and her fun wardrobe with your--
Happy Creativity!

This paper doll has been "remodeled" by us for your use. It therefore cannot be re-packaged for sale, even if you re-modify it still further (unless you ask for our permission to do so and we happen to grant it freely).
All of this paper doll's outfits have had to be manipulated heavily using Photoshop, in order to ensure proper fit along with quality. This has not always been easy. The doll's arms and body do not conform to the average fashion plates from her era. Lots of work went into each outfit. Some have turned out better than others, but we were glad to provide her along with her outfits here at Plush Possum.
Therefore, we respectfully ask that our version of this doll, along with her outfits and accoutrements, never be re-packaged by anybody for sale sold as sets. If you choose to make art with one or two items from this paper doll set, please do credit the site. If you would happen to wish to offer anything here as a set or singly, we also ask respectfully that you would refrain from taking credit for our work, and that you would likewise directly refer your guests back to the site of origin.
We respect the copyrights of others, and ask that you will join us in every effort to do so.
Thank you.

ira: Thank you for your lovely comment, dearie!
We love your positive feedback here at PPS.
In our modern world, we all dress so casually on an everyday basis, I think we forget how truly formally dressed do many people had to be in times gone by.

MIss Rabbit: Thank you for your lovely comment. So far, this is our favorite outfit of hers. Just love that ruching on her shirtwaist front! But the HAT I'd love most of all, being a bit of a hat nut. Love the plumes!
So glad you enjoy her too.
