Like the pink dress, this outfit is of a universal size, but since there's three other outfits sized like that and they're ALL MOSTLY PINK, I decided to make this outfit solely for Billie Jean. The skirt is purple with dark pink, blue, and white flowers, so I knew her hair would match it instead of clashing. This looks like a dress, but it is in fact a skirt and a top. Both items are cut generously so they flatter Billie Jean's curves without looking too tight...and both pieces are printed all the way around!!! I did have a little trouble getting the skirt's waistband around the doll's hips, but other than that she slides into this like a weasel slides into a prairie dog hole. As an added bonus, Billie Jean can sit in this (she couldn't sit in her tight stock skirt). I hope Mattel does more of these cute outfits; I've griped in the past about Mattel skimping on doll clothes, so I hope the release of these outfits is a sign of things to come.
I wish to thank our readers for the input on the last Dolly Dress Discussion. D7ana says she thinks Sindy, Candace, and Bambi rocked the pink dress the best, and the other two commenters seemed to just appreciate the multiple comparison photos. Taking those photos is no easy task, particularly when I'm using the camera on my cell phone, so the kind words are much appreciated. Talolili and I do our best to make this blog a nice one, so it's always good to know our work pleases y'all.
I've got another Throwback Thursday review waiting in the wings, so stay tuned!
