A Body Pattern for Antique
Papier Mache and China Shoulderhead Dolls


I designed and sized a body for this head made by Dixie.  The pattern offered is suitable for many types of antique shoulder head dolls made of china and papier mache.  It may be sized up or down on a copier to fit a particular head. As given, the body makes about a 22 inch doll.  If you do not already have a favorite basic body pattern for shoulder heads I hope this will become it. To read and see more about it go to this entry on the new blog about my doll family.

If you see Dixie's skilled hand behind the look of this new blog you are right!  Beautiful! 


There are seven pages in this downloadable pdf document. When printing it from your computer you might like to print pages 1,6 and 7 on photo paper and the other pages on plain.  Make several copies of pages 3 and 4 with the pattern shapes and enlarge or reduce these as desired for different dolls.   Both a full figured and a more slender torso are given.  It is easy to customize the pattern for your own projects. Thanks, Edyth
