Dolly Sunbonnet and Her New Clothes

This paper doll, offered early in the 20th century is a simple fore-runner of those to come. She is neither four colors nor black and white as she has red touches on her garments and accessories.

The original directions are charming as well: “This is a pretty paper doll which children can cut out and dress.  Dolly should be cut out carefully and pasted on a piece of cardboard to stiffen her figure. The cardboard can be carefully trimmed into shape using a pair of sharp scissors.  By pasting a narrow strip of cardboard on the back of Dolly, like the support of an easel, she can be made to stand. Cut along the dotted line in Dolly’s sunbonnet and place it on her head. Cut the dotted line in her left hand and she can hold the shovel. Cut around the right hand on the dress and she can hold the little pail also.  In putting the dress and jacket on Dolly, the flaps, indicated by the dotted lines, should be bent back to keep the garments in place.”

Included in this 2 page PDF paper doll are:

  • Dolly Sunbonnet, a young girl from the farm, in a full ruffled slip with red shoes and socks
  • Pleated school dress with red binding on the neck and sleeves
  • Red jacket with white collar and cuffs to fit over the dress
  • Sunbonnet with red ties and bow
  • Red sand pail
  • Red handled shovel

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!
