I would like some of the things lying around this bedroom to tell the tale of the occupant, and to that end, fancied having some clothes she picked out that morning draped, waiting for her to go out with her friends that evening.

Am regarding today’s results as a ‘place holder‘ and hope to make it all up again but a bit bigger and with better edges too now that I’ve got a clearer idea of what will fit.  At the moment it looks 1:16 to fit the wardrobe rather than 1:12(ish) to fit the bed and house.

Should have stuck to the first thought which was a black felt circular skirt with a large motif, but was concerned about the bulk of felt not behaving nicely.
Will have a go with the felt next and see if it is as bad as feared. At least it will have non-fraying edges 😉

The top could be a little more fun and less pyjama looking too.

Off to do the shopping for the week but, as it’s a fairly lengthy journey, there’ll be plenty of time to muse on suitable fabrics.
