I'm not a huge stickler for getting details exactly right. I feel it kind of gets in the way of improvising, using what you have on hand, having fun, but I did want to try to at least get in the right ballpark for my Little Women dolls dresses. I'm having lots of fun looking up inspiration!
I found these gorgeous Little Women paper dolls by Donald Hendrinks on this fun website, Gabi's Paper dolls.
this gal's pinterest board was super helpful. lots of links to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's costume collection.
