My friend's kids are really into a kids' show called Lalaloopsy. I think it's already old news in US but it just started showing here in Finland. I helped my friend to find some Lala- toys on Ebay, since there isn't that much available over here and that hunting inspired me to make couple of outfits for the girls to play Lalaloopsies themselves!

I used an H&M T-shirts as bases for the tops. Changed the sleeves to puffy ones and added some vintage fabric-covered buttons and a ruffle. The skirt (and the sleeves) are made of vintage fabric from the 60s.

Sorry about the blurry Instagram-photos. Here's one of the girls wearing her outfit:

If you are interested, there's more about the backstory at my blog: https://thriftyfinn.wordpress.com/2015/01/15/diy-inspired-by-lalaloopsy/
