Ok, here's the full length view. I'm not sure why the Victorians decided to emphasise women's bottoms with bustles and so on; for heaven's sake, my butt is big enough already. There is a whole Victorian wardrobe here, where I hired this outfit, but I've decided to join the Victorian Sewing Circle and make my own for next year. And a corset!!! I have some patterns, but these outfits are not the sort of thing you can whip up in a weekend. For example, I was going to make myself a can-can skirt (hey, not ALL the Victorians were prim and proper!). I cut the pattern out, and the ruffle piece said "Cut 47". 47 pieces of ruffle! No wonder the pattern takes about 11 yards of fabric. For each layer. I gave up at that point.
Keep watching for more photos from the festival.
