JEAN HARLOW Paper Doll
April 14, 1935. I posted this paper doll several years ago but I wanted to redo it and try to make Jean and her clothes look better. --- "Three large flowers add the only color to this lovely evening dress. The gown otherwise, is simple, following the lines of the figure close to the knee where it flares becomingly to the floor. For evening wear, Jean chooses a dress of graceful white chiffon which is featured by its novel use of fine pleating and scarf draped waist."
"A nautical sport suit of corded blue and white silk worn with dark blue polo shirt. Black wool shot with gold metal threads is fashioned into this afternoon gown from the personal wardrobe of Jean Harlow. The gown features a split skirt and black and gold cord trimming. The hat is created of matching material and the white gloves have fringed cuffs."
"A stunning hostess gown of crimson velvet. The unusual fullness features in the bodice and skirt is an interesting fashion note. Long full sleeves are caught at the waist and the belt has a beautiful jeweled buckle. Long flowing beach pajamas of orchid satin with dark purple sash, buttons and trim of the same material."
