Paper Doll Dressing Gown, Colors 1, 2 and 3

Victoria's Dressing Gown has a New Look now, too!

Victoria had this dressing gown a few years ago. While it did appear to fit the older look doll, with the updated New Look dolls, there was cause for a remodel. Once that was accomplished, I then played with color, and have found several new, pretty colors from which Paper Doll enthusiasts can now choose.

Let's begin with the first 3 New Look colors today. Later on this month, I will try to add the rest of the colors here in a new post.
please check with me at G+ or here with a comment, if you happen to have any questions.

The story behind dressing gowns in general may be summed up simply. Young ladies faced challenges during dressing time each day. Sometimes, the wealthier women of the era were known to change clothes several times a day, which is way they needed maids for that purpose. Houses were often chilly then, so a dressing gown was worn over underclothes as one put one's hair in order for the occasion.

In Victoria's case, there is much less fuss. She will dress for the day, as well as for dinner, and then change one more time before bed. For formal occasions, she is often given a pretty dress to wear. Her grandmother may dress grandly for special outings, and she enjoys fashion quite well enough. All the same, she has chosen to allow Victoria to have a greater interest in how to make her way in the world over and ahead of simply being a fashionable young lady.

Before Victoria are numerous heirs to her grandmother's moderate fortune. This has meant that either becoming well educated or marrying the right man are the two choices available for our young Victoria Lacey, for she will stand to inherit very little.

She has been guided by her grandmother into becoming well educated prior to even thinking of getting married. This is natural, for at Grandfather Lacey's sudden departure from this world, his wife was left with the bulk of his estate to take care of, a task which she had never been trained to perform. She wants things for her orphaned granddaughter which she herself had never been able to have as a young person. 

"An independent woman of refinement," she tells Victoria, "can make a living of her own, but it must be done in the just right way."

I like this dressing gown, for it is both practical and pretty. It now will be shown in the first 3 colors: Sapphire, Garnet and Emerald (which was the color of the first dressing gown of 4 years ago).

Oh--and please be sure to see her very own page in the task bar below this blog's banner. There are things in there that are about to be removed due to quality issues, but those are few and may soon be replaced with better quality clothes and fit for the doll.

Happy Playtime Creativity!
