Tillie the Toiler
May 1, 1932

Tillie and her stylish clothes always turned heads!

Tillie the Toiler was a popular comic for many years, because each Sunday brought a new paper doll, outfits and accessories in the Sunday newspaper comic section. Tillie worked for a sophisticated women’s wear company and her boss was clothing mogul J. Simpkins. Tillie’s adventures included meeting attractive, and usually wealthy, young men. No matter where she went or what she did, she was always impeccably dressed. You can help Tillie get ready for her day by dressing this reproduction paper doll in her two dimensional wardrobe.

Requests for fashion designers were often included in the Tillie paper dolls section. Focused on encouraging readers to design outfits for Tillie, strip designer Russ Westover would pick the best outfit and draw it to fit Tillie in a future comic script. Mr. Westover’s invitation to “Watch for your own dress design in colors in this paper” created many Tillie followers and paper doll collectors.

Remember that Tillie the Toiler was printed in the comic section of the newspaper and that colors and/or registration of the outlines will be of newsprint quality. This adds to the appeal of these paper dolls that will soon be a hundred years old.

Included in this 3 page PDF newsprint four color paper doll are:

  • Tillie the Toiler Doll in an apricot one piece, black belted sun-suit and high heels
  • Sophisticated yellow day dress with sailor collar and red bow

This paper doll and her accessories are a PDF that will be downloaded to your computer and printed off by your computer’s printer. Please help keep Sunbonnet Smart on-line by not sharing paper dolls. Be fair! Don’t share!
