Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Cute! Very cute!

It may be the angle, but it seems like the petticoat's lifted it a little higher above the knees (From the bottom, it looks like a really fluffy petti!). If you have enough fabric, I think it would be absolutely darling with a ruffle along the bottom, to add length and help hide the petticoat. Smiley

Thank you all!!

n 3n

Ginger_kitty; Its only a single layer that I bought somewhere, and I don't care for it much ):
I tried to make one of my own and it turned out...not so well...heh. xD
But Yeah, I keep making little improvements to it, like the ribbon under the bust. And I really like the ruffle idea.
It sounds like it'd be really cute, so thank you very much for the suggestion!! n 3n

Lindsycarranza; Thanks!! Yeah, It snowed a few times in the past few days, and it was prettty chilly out there. Haha.

I hope you'll post pictures of any updates, if you do continue to modify it. Smiley

If you're not fond of your petti, then I can say that In The Starlight (moderate fluff, good value) and Candy Violet (ULTRA fluff) both have good ones. I fully understand issues with making them, but if you ever want to try again, one tip is to buy the spools of ~5in wide tulle that they sell at craft shops. I usually ruffle those onto really thin broadcloth, and just make a couple layers that way.

Thats a good tip! Thank you n .n
When I made mine, I used about five yards of the coarser tulle, and some satin, but I made the uber mistake of sewing them together in layers of five or six, so I got a tiered look rather than a fluffy look..heh.
