Handmade dresses

It's always fun to find handmade paper doll outfits, even if there is no doll to go with it. I found 12 dresses on lined paper yesterday at a doll show here in Teaneck, NJ. They were stuffed in a plastic baggie with paper dolls and clothes from the 1960s and 1970s. From the shape of the dresses and the style, I'm guessing this little girl had a Raphael Tuck doll to play with...but who knows? Any guesses? On second look, I'm also thinking of the Hood Family paper dolls, with those round shoulders and arms held out...
