Vicki Pallister was a 16 year old orphan from the 22nd century.

She acted as a sort of surrogate teenager/grand-daughter for The Doctor.

I must confess, while I have seen a fair few of the old Who episodes, I haven’t seen any featuring Vicki, so I can’t really add anything more about her here, what I can say is that I do love the dress she wears in this episode.


The Dress.

Vicki is wearing a black A-line dress with rolled up sleeves.

How to get the chevrons.

imagesYou can get out the old needle and thread, and attatch a white braid or ribbon in the same design.

Or you can fake it with some jewellery pieces.
