elliptical-hoop

It is absurddddd how much better this photographs on the dslr vs the iPhone.  Hhhhammy thinks something about the focal length makes the skirt look much smaller than it actually is.  Underneath the skirt fabric is the elliptical hoop cage (pattern from Truly Victorian), with a tulle petti on top and another very short tulle petticoat to give it some extra volume at the hips.  Over that is a two tier organza petti, with one more single tier organza petticoat to smooth everything out.  I haven’t actually measured the final thing yet, but for reference the hoop cage itself is a 126″ circumference.
