If you like, lay your favorite fashion doll on the paper and trace around it for a basic shape. Add details to the doll with Crayola True to Life™ Tri-Color Crayons and Markers. Cut out the doll.

    Designing fashions starts with an idea. What inspires you? A bunch of flowers outside your window? A crayon color? A movie you recently saw? Take your idea and make paper clothing or a period or dress-up costume for your doll. Just use the pattern you made! True to Life products have a three pre-coordinated colors in each marker or crayon. To make the textural look of fabric, just twist and turn the tips for multi-tonal effects.

    Think beyond paper for your clothing designs. What else can you use? Bits of foil, ribbon, or gauze add an extra "wow" to any paper doll wardrobe. Glue on decorations such as beads or sequins for extra flair! Air-dry the glue. Your paper dolls will be runway ready!
