[QUOTE=svevo;137920]I've had the most luck in general with clothes from Boohoo. I usually shop in their sale, when they are doing free or cheap delivery. I would always choose size 12 or 10 for a dress for Lara from boohoo.This is a nice body con dress size 10.

Willow's skater dress is by Boohoo. Size 4 for a slim standard Teddy babe.

Thanks Dongo. That dress fits her perfectly - Willow looks great in it. I've also found the skater style in either a dress or skirt is a good choice for both Lara and Emma, because you can get a smaller size that will more closely fit the waist, whilst still working with their hip size e.g. We have a size 4 skater skirt and a size 6 skater dress that they can both wear - Lara will probably be modelling them here at some point

Thanks Karrot. We've not had much luck with the local charity shops so far, but do keep trying, given others cracking finds.

Thanks carlys_guy. It's weird the difference it makes to have her standing.

But Lara looks even more gorgeous in this outfit.

Thanks Tommo. It is one of our favourites too! I'll post a pic of my stand at some point in the stands thread. In the end your tip on using wardrobe rail fittings helped me do something just with some bits I had lying around the garage.

The trouble with Deluxe TB's is they are really two sizes in the same body what with the large "frontage" and only a small waist. Generally Kat takes a 10-12 size and we pull in the waist with a belt or ribbon.
By the way, Kat has far too many clothes and would be happy to donate some nice dresses.
Look forward to seeing more from Lara.
Thanks Kats01 that is a very kind - I'm also trying to keep the clothes acquisition under control .
Fortunately they are sharing quite a few as Emma and Lara are much the same size from the waist down. With you on that sizing as a general rule. Looking at some of the shapes of many of the TPE dolls though, we have a relatively easy life

Yes, I also have a size 6 skater dress in blue. The size 4 is a little tight going over the hips and can only be worn by Willow. Nicole needs the size 6.

Lara popped by to show me another of her dresses from boohoo (size 12 this time).



Yeah - nice I said.

Then the next question - "What about from the back? Does it make my bum look big?"



Errrrr no?
(But is it supposed to be so transparent )

Hi Svevo,

Lara looks so beautiful, love the transparent dress they are always the best and definitely my favorite type
Really love your stand, you did a great job with that.

Default Nice dress.

Ah! That's nice Lara. Size 12 is what we usually have for Kat and Julie. sometimes a 10 but, as you know Svevo our girls are quite large in certain areas. We use belts to pull in the waist and if a has straps, tie them with a ribbon behind to make them tighter and prevent the straps getting in the shoulder joints.

Ello Lara from Lady K. Lovely to see how beautiful you look and many hellos. Keep Mr Svevo happy and he will buy you many things. I have many dresses in 10 12 size if you are wanting for free.
Good wishes from myself and Miss Julie.
