I received a comment on my last blog post and realized I had made a mistake. For some reason, I consider FR2 and the regular tall FR dolls two separate lines! Breaking the Mold Vero is the only 2.0 version I have on the regular FR body, but I still have last year's Full Spectrum Veronique on the FR2 body! She is a favorite from last year, so she's gonna hang around for a while.
The comment caused me to go to my cabinet and look at the FR2 dolls, which are even segregated in my case! My dear Mama always said, "Never throw out the baby with the bath water." For those of you who don't know that expression, it means "look for the silver lining" - "just because one thing has gone wrong, find the right in the situation". I decided to take out my Randall Craig and Dressmaker Details clothing and do some experimenting with FR2 dolls.
I found that some ensembles actually fit the FR2 body just fine. Here is the criteria: the bodice of any shirt or dress cannot be tailored for the bigger bust. Most skirt ensembles actually look quite good. Here are some examples.
One of the earliest ensembles I own is "Uncomplicated Elegance". This outfit was manufactured before the "tall" bodies. Fortunately, the sleeves are short and the skirt not too form-fitting. The white knit sweater is wrap-around with a string tie. The skirt is a black textured silk. Nightfall Agnes from the 2013 Premiere Convention, agreed to model.
Since the unstructured body suit from "Neutrally Hip" seemed to fit, I decided to try this polka-dot ensemble. This outfit has a full skirt.
