How to Make a Paper Dress Template

To speed up the doll-making process, create a dress template. Simply cut out a tall trapezoid; the top edge should be approximately the same width as the spoon’s handle. You can also use this to make a jacket for the men—just add arms! Consider making the template out of sturdy cardboard, especially if you plan to create more wooden or paper doll clothes.
