I was hoping for some Mediterranean sunshine here in grey and dismal Brum, but it isn’t coming, so I togged up and dragged the missus after to take some snaps. Before we braved the chill damp air, I tried a few fast options for tops to go with this- I’ve found purple problematic in the past, other than when matched with more purple, and I also wanted to look at shapes and styles of tops that might work.
Anyway, long story shorter, I’m not getting fully rigged up in my proper corsets today for the show of how this works with several of my steampunk looks, this is more ‘real’ clothes, as I may well enter this look in the Pattern Review ‘Match My Shoes’ competition, as long as I make a decision [and a top] pretty sharpish.
Despite the horrors of how incredibly HUGE my middle looks in a fitted skirt, I LOVE this. Enjoy!
