I believe this is gonna be one of my favorite creations this year!  I have a small collection of vintage lingere and laces and this is made with the most scrumptious peach silk and hand tatted lace.  I had made the corset using a thick white brocade lining for stability, then transformed it into this Marie Antoinette style costume.  I added accents of black satin, made a matching 3 tiered bustl-y skirt, tie on mask, neck ruffle and SPATS!  All with matching antique lace from the 20s/30s.  Each layer of the gathered ruffles on the skirt is bound in peach andpink binding, because if you flounce, it shows :).  I made a pattern for the spats and will try to upload that eventually.
