It's basically four rectangles of fabric--silver body, silver ruffle on the bottom, lace overdress, and a silver binding to hem the lace. The silver is some sort of shiny polyester lining fabric--I think it's the scraps left over from a cloak lining. (The binding really should have been on the bias--maybe it all should have been on the bias, but I didn't have much silver fabric to work with.)
The dress stays on due to a piece of elastic at the top--unfortunately, the gathering there creates an unattractive stiff pouf, so I'll need to replace the elastic with darts or some-such.
I don't know what the ribbon scarf's doing. It's not attached to the dress or anything. Maybe Arizona was cold.
After the dress is finished, I figure I'll measure all the parts and make it into a proper pattern to post up here.
Below: the fixed ~1780's skirt and half-finished blouse.
See here for the saga of Pullip's bulky waistline.
And now... ta-da! The skirt is fixed, and the matching (unfinished) blouse now fits over or under it. It's amazing how much less bulky it got with a bit of gathering and trimming. The waistband flattens it all out.
(Skirt and blouse pinned in back, because I lack buttons, beads, or hook-and-loops.)
I like the gathers in the blouse (no darts!). The ribbon scarf Arizona's wearing is actually intended as a sash for the Pullip outfit here. The top's a bit plain though--what do you think? Tiny lace on neckline and cuffs? Just a necklace? A hat? There's a cool cardboard hat tutorial here. What's missing?
