Notes: Made spring 2012. I used a shirt and skirt bought from Fan+Friend. I wore these over my 18th C bum roll to give a bustled effect, but then also wore a short crinoline petticoat to poof things out all around. Then I made a crown out of gold scrapbooking paper, pinned this to a little bowler hat, and sewed burgundy ribbon to a cheap nylon parasol to accessorize. I wore the boots I normally wear with my day bustle outfits, plus black leggings.
