Circus Female Ringleader-Gorilla Tamer Costume Part 2
Here's some of the last minute prepartions of this costume. I needed a corset looking waistband. I sewed this on after gathering the bottom half of the skirt. I then added ribbon to it to make it look like a corset. I then added lots and lots of tulle and did a rollem hem in red.
I wore a red petticoat underneath. It was so much fun swishing through the streets with this on. I had two pairs of leggings including a striped black and white pair with my big lace up black boots. I added flowers to the top and rim of the top hat and added a scarf around it of sequin chiffon. I made the necklace which I'll someday write up a tutorial for.
