I found this really cool 1969 charm coursebook at Goodwill a while ago, but couldn't figure out the perfect theme for a good month.  So now that I've finished the Traveling Storyteller book I did for my friend, I decided to go a little girlier than usual and have fun with paper dolls and dress up.  Not everything in the book's going to be vintage or retro, and I'm leaving some of the more interesting pages ("If you have skinny legs it's better to wear bulky knit knee socks than a leotard even if leotards are all the rage." and "Some Glove Do's and Don'ts"), but I really loved putting this spread together.  Here's the spreada couple of closer scans of the pages are on my site:

I used to LOVE paper dolls when I was a little girl. Anyone remember the Betsy McCall paper dolls every month in the McCall's magazines?

I remember cutting those out.  Now I want to track some of those down to add to the book!
I also had fun with the ones in American Girl magazines.
