I will warn you now. IMAGE HEAVY (A little over 20 pictures of Red Dress, Skirt, and WiP Underbust Dress).
See Picture of this being worn with same petti to note that this is not full poof potential.
Loops on the back for lacing
With Petticoat, at the end of a day which entailed attending my Furry Monster's Training Class Graduation Ceremony at work, hence wrinkling and lack of blouse.
Without Petticoat, at aforementioned "Graduation Ceremony" with my dear Kali Faye.
Caught with my mouth open, while telling Kali to look at the camera.
This pictures is included because I can. Taken before her class started, after I put her through the torture of taking her back to The Salon (where I spend 20-30 hours of my week, up to my neck in wet dog) and digging through my drawer of bows so she and I could match.
Specifics on The Red Dress:
Invisible Zipper (through two layers of fabric,the idea of which I am no longer fond of)
Bows have pin-backs so they can be taken off
Layer of lightweight interfacing between the hand-gathered outer layer of the bust, and the lining
Fabric loops down back for lacing
Crappy, blurry shot of it being worn.
