silly girls

I’ve been meaning to write this post since forEVER. I am such a bad friend. I’m sorry Rebecca!

A while back I did some (paid) illustration work for a friend who invented this really super cool t-shirt design. They are basically t-shirts with paper-dolls printed on them that you can velcro different outfits onto. Super cute and fun! Anyway, I wanted to show you all how cool they are in case anybody was looking for something a little different for a little girl in their life for Christmas.

(I should probably just break down and write a gift guide post one of these days. But that’s not really my style. I hate shopping. I just like promoting people that I know and love.)

Part of the reason it took me so long to blog about is that Bug is not into them. It’s a cryin’ shame. But she’s only wears a strict uniform of skinny Hello Kitty shirts so no matter how much I bribed her with pedicures and frozen yogurt, she was just not into taking pictures in a Ypsi Doll shirt.

Good thing her best friend was. :) Though I have to apologize for the photos. I was borrowing a camera and no matter what I did, I couldn’t get the white balance right. I tried to fix it in photoshop but I think I lost some detail in the white.

dress her up

So just imagine this t-shirt in crisp white and the outfits vivid and colorful.


My friend Madeline at Maisonette designed the little outfits. Aren’t they cute?

They’re pretty fun to play with even if you are too cool to wear them.

    What an awesome idea! Great collaboration too, they turned out super cute :). Alas I dress only boys, who prefer to write on their own shirts with sharpies.

    I love this! Any chance she would have a coupon code she would like SAJ to promote?? Would love to get this for a Christmas gift!

  • Rebecca from Ypsi Dolls

    Thanks so much Brenda. And YES! we are currently running a special. If you buy an Ypsi Doll T-shirt, you get a free outfit. There is no coupon code to enter, just when you see your total, you will see the promotion deducted. The idea is selling, so we have already sold out of some of the skirts. Order now to ensure you get the sizes you want. And thanks again, Secret Agent Josephine.

    Oh gosh I am so behind. I wish I had played catch up earlier. I could have done some hot chocolate pouches from the last post (which is soooo old I cannot even comment on it) for Christmas this year.
