Thank you! I do need to try to make a more matching top. I think something white would work best, since it would help to bring out the white stars in the skirt. Hm. Might work on that later, I think I've got some soft cotton that would work well...

I'm just amazed doll clothes have worked out a thing that actual clothing seems to not understand!

Well, try it anyway.  What is there to lose?  If you use a piece of scrap for a prototype, you won't have to worry about wrecking your preferred fabric, and you might end up with something wearable on the first try.  I never made any doll clothes before doing my girls' pirate jacket... just tried on a whim and it turned out pretty well.  So I'm looking forward to seeing what you make smile

Honestly, the pockets were easier to do than the waistband, if I'm completely honest here. And you've got a very good point... I'll just need to look up some designs to try to get an idea. And knowing me, it'll take a while - I'm faster for 1/3 stuff than 1/6 stuff. Mostly because the latter requires smaller stitching, so I need to have a lot of good light.

I am taking this as a compliment - because my head went to Marilyn Munster and that is not a bad image.

65. 1984 Pedigree Sindy with Active Body

Active body just means she has bendy limbs rather like a Takara Licca-chan. Pretty sure she's 1984 from her head marking and shorter hair style. I call her Susan. After Susan Foreman, the Doctor's granddaughter. Something about her reminds me of the character from Doctor Who. And yes, Faerie Glen dress again.
