I loved paper dolls when I was a kid. I remember having a Tammy and the Doctor paper doll book.

Lovely books.

I keep going back to: Vintage 60s BERNETTI Beaded Dress and Matching Coat Medium bust 39. My husband likes it too and it would fit me! I have the Belle Epoque Paper Dolls and love these books. My blogger account does not have my email (probably should change that); it is teamtt at rogers dot com (sorry about writing it out but our spam guard does not seem to get everything). Good luck to everyone: I love your blog and your giveaways!

There are loads of amazing dresses on your website, but one that stands out for me is this one:

http://www.coutureallure.com/products/vintage-50s-claire-mccardell-grey-wool-dress-owned-by-mary-cantwell-small

In addition to the fact that it's such a beautiful, interesting, and well-constructed piece of clothing, it also has a backstory, which I love.
