I like the shorts idea for the bottom i think a skirt would come off a little ...show girly instead of circus. Sounds precious! was looking around and maybe to add the skirt effect you could make a sort of bustle type skirt add-on to the shorts to incorporate the corset colors with it?
Oh my gosh I love that idea. I actually have yet to do anything with this corset. It got pushed to the bottom of my closet never to be seen again. I think I'm going to try to remake it once school is out and make it a thousand times better. I'm thinking poofy shorts (not sure what the name would be) but almost steam punk looking shorts with a short bustle attached to the back. I'm really excited now. Thanks for the idea! If I ever get around to making that project I will post updates and pictures!
