Very fine pieces! It is almost a pity, that the bustle has to be covered up was both the petticoat (very pretty too) and a dress. But considering the standard here, The dress should be stunning!

Props to you for a well-fitting corset! That's lovely, as is the rest of the set.

These are adorable undies! I love it when people put so much effort in things that usually no one will see - but you know it's there! :)
