I didn't totally follow the tutorial, as I didn't want a skirt that opened at the front, so mine is actually a kind of bustle belt with a matching underskirt, but I still think it looks fun!
|So many ruffles!|
The corset is a shop one, from corsets uk and the top is a mans shirt I picked up in a charity shop and altered. I used an online tutorial for that as well,but sadly I can't find the link for that anymore.
The bustle is done up by kilt straps (our local ribbons and whatnot shop stocks them so I use them a lot!). The skirt is trimmed with black embroiderie anglaise and the shirt with the widest black lace trim I could find.
I wore this outfit for my birthday party last year, when I had an afternoon tea party and invited everyone who wanted to, to dress up. It was lots of fun!
I have plans for this outfit, for when 'Ria dies/retires as I'd like my next character to be a bit less prudish and a lot more sassy!
Next week I've got pics of my LT kit to show you. Have a great weekend!
