I think she's supposed to be a 'Mrs Tiggywinkle' character, from Beatrix Potter stories. Her old clothes look similar in colouring to the illustrations too! A pink gingham dress, with a light coloured apron and a mop hat.Google image search 'mrs tiggywinkle' and you will see what I mean.
you're right, june! i realized that but then forgot about it once she was naked! Mrs. TW was one of my very favorite BP stories, and i had a wonderful record of it that i played over and over...now the question is: should i remake her outfit in authentic fabrics instead of what i was planning?
Well... maybe Mrs TW would like a wardrobe makeover - a whole new outfit for modern times, but in keeping with her style :o) It must be hard being a recognisable character, and having to wear your 'picture-book outfit' all the time. Imagine if film stars had to wear their film costumes everyday too!
