Bill and Doctor Who Striped Leotard

Last night we met Bill Potts, the Doctor’s newest companion. She’s a woman of color, a lesbian, quick-thinking, curious, adventurous and a terrific dresser. You can tell I’m not the only one who thinks so, because a quick search for “bill doctor who clothes” produces a lot– including this video produced by the BBC about Bill’s wardrobe:

My favorite of her looks in the show were two shirts– a black and white shirt with a woman’s face on it:

and a vertically striped leotard with spaghetti straps.

I wasn’t surprised to learn from the video that Bill’s look draws heavily from vintage items found in thrift shops, so I did my best to find equivalents on Etsy. I found a bunch of things that aren’t identical but definitely evoke Bill’s style so far, and you’re welcome to check them all out by viewing the list I made HERE.
