The Nymphea Skirt & Top Set, by BuzzinBea, is flowy, feminine and chic. Your doll might want to wear it all the time! This ensemble features a 3-piece outfit – a top, skirt and shorts. The top has a cropped length with ruched bodice and puff sleeves with accent trims all around. The maxi skirt has three tiers made of sheer fabric to serve as an overlay piece for the short shorts. Have fun making the outfit with different prints for the top and be creative in picking materials for the see-through skirt. There is a bonus style for a crop top with decorative button placket and short skirts with lace hem. This style works best with matching fabric with floral prints for both the top and skirt for a trendy look.
This outfit looks very appealing for casual summer or spring season but it can definitely be an ensemble for fall or winter look just by adding a piece of boots and jackets with it. Such an all-season and versatile outfit, these pieces will definitely be staples in your doll’s wardrobe.
