Steampunk Saturdays: The Widow
I'm now onto the last few hats from Natty Titfers and I'm really pleased with how this outfit came out! Although the hat is really pretty, I didn't expect to end up loving it as much as I do. The outfit reminds me of Victorian mourning clothing (although my mum pointed out that it might be half mourning due to the green on the hat).
My skirt is a beautiful original 1950s piece which unfortunately gets hardly any wear. It's really full and quite heavy, so I've layered it with three petticoats here to give it some fullness, but I could easily have put a couple more underneath to give it a really nice shape. It's begging for a trip out to the opera or something!
