The skirt. The velcro at both sides is used to hold the peplum in place
So, you have seen all that is underneath. The bloomers, the underskirt and the undershirts. Now for what's on top! First of all there is the proper skirt. It is huge! It is heavy. It comes nearly down to the ground. And I think it's beautiful!

Then there is the top of course. A sort of jacket that isn't a jacket, yet it isn't a shirt either. A few weeks ago I showed you how the top is closed and I can tell you: it is very fiddly (think bra times 10) and it takes some time! Fortunately it's fastened at the front, because if it would have been at the back, I would be in trouble!

And then there is the peplum (a short overskirt), that is fastened to the skirt and basically makes my bum look even bigger!!


  1. Hello Mara, looking really good love the colour. The recipe I used for the Simnel cake is one of Mary Berry's you will find it here:


  2. What a costume ! That must be very heavy to wear. Don't weigh yourself you may faint when you see the number on the balance, lol !

  4. So pretty. Your mom did a great job on this. Looking forward to you in the costume!

  5. Janice: It was a friend of my mother's who actually sewed most of it.

  6. Wow, that is some costume. Love the material. I can't wait to see you in it.
