Twist 'N Shout Darla Daley in Rebecca jumpsuit made by Shasha of atelierni Shasha

Since 2013, Twist 'N Shout Darla Daley by Integrity Toys has been wearing the Rebecca one-shouldered jumpsuit made by Shasha. I won the fashion during Shasha's Welcome 2013 Contest. It's perfect for Darla, including the handmade bracelet, earrings, and belt.  However, recently I decided to see if Tamica would look as good wearing it.

Because Tamica was wearing the Tamica dress Shasha made (shown above), I decided to just do a fashion swap between the two dolls. I was pleasantly surprised.

Tamica now wears her bronze leaf-shaped earrings and beaded bracelet along with bronze sandals, matching purse, and a copper arm bracelet with the Rebecca jumpsuit, which I knew would look nice on her, but...

...I didn't realize how great Darla would look in the Tamica dress.  Her body already exhibits a lot of "movement,"  which the dress accentuates.  Darla still wears the earrings that came with the Rebecca jumpsuit, and the belt is now worn as a two-strand necklace with beaded pendant.

Darla finished her new look with a faux-straw hat that Goddess Emerald wore first, which looks rather nice with her new ensemble.

I have always considered doll redressing as the next best thing to getting a new doll without the added expense.  Darla's redress really did give me the new doll sensation, but this is probably because she had been wearing the jumpsuit for over three years!  Because Tamica has become my redressing muse, I know she won't wear the jumpsuit as long.
