Dr Girlfriend - The Mall Outfit
This is one of my favourite outfits. It's the dress Sheila wears to the mall with Phantom Limb when she meets up with The Monarch in the food court. This was a lot of fun to make. I used the same basic pattern from my Dr Girlfriend dress and made it backless. There is a back part that creates the skirt, a band across the bra-line, and a half-moon collar to hold it in place. The fabric is a stretchy knit magenta from Joann's Fabrics and the polka-dots are made of pink and purple felt. I used plates and bowls as templates to cut them out. She wears her same white boots and pillbox hat with this outfit, and long white gloves, which I also got from Joann's in a Halloween sale. I've already sold one of these on eBay; it's one of Sheila's more unusual outfits, but well worth having in your Dr Girlfriend collection!
