A friend of mine just sent me this photo asking how hard it would be to put together.....obviously not a sewer lol
So I was wondering if there are any suggestions for the skirt mainly? The top sort of looks like a peasant style with long sleeves (not the best photo I know!)
Any help would be awesome! It looks like there is a lot of fabric there....
Thanks!

It looks like a full skirt with the petals as an overskirt.  If she could find a skirt she likes, the overskirt might not be too hard to do.

I agree, there's just a regular skirt underneath there.  Looks like an a-line with a gathered ruffle at the bottom.  I'm guessing that the "petals" over the top are squares, turned on-point, with the top point attached to the skirt at the waistband.  Since it looks like a taffeta type of fabric, the squares don't hang limp and stay more spread out.  Looks like the edges have been stretched a little as they were serged/hemmed so that they get that bit of ruffle.  Since the waistband is covered by the corset, you could do elastic to keep things simple.  I see green fabric hanging down under the bottom of the skirt but have no clue on that.  (And the sleeves on the blouse look like they are split up to the elbow.)  Is that enough analysis for you?

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.
