Inspiration for an outfit

26.7.08 - 15:30
I was just looking the other day at la Carmina's post about Rococo inspiration here, when I came across this image. It would make such a great starting point for a lolita maybe slightly steampunk outfit. This is also a great way for me to look at making something other than a dress, which I've been doing a lot of recently...
So I was thinking I could do a similar skirt but around knee length and then maybe do the top as a jacket? or a little more towards a corset?
