|The RealPukis have magnets in their feet. I find I can't get them to|
stand up unless they perch on something metallic. Here they are
posing atop the lid (i.e., roof) of a tin shaped like a house.
I used the bodice pattern piece from the Anchors Away pattern by My Own Little World, to which I added a simple skirt, i.e., a rectangle gathered at the waist. Then I decorated each with teeny tiny buttons.

At first I tried to make the romper shown on the pattern envelope. I don't know what I did wrong, but the outfit came out way too big. I probably should have made just one before cutting out all three. Thank goodness the pieces are all extremely tiny, so there isn't much wasted fabric.

I was afraid the hat would be too big without a wig underneath. Instead of adjusting the pattern, I decided to forgo the hats and make a sort of headband instead.
The headband is a narrow strip of fabric that widens at either end into a sort of oar shape. I left an opening in the middle of the strip for turning the fabric and for inserting a piece of wire shaped like the oar. After sewing the wire-stuffed form closed, I had a headband that could be twisted in any way I liked. The end product is a sort of cross between bunny ears and a do rag.
