I'm glad to see a picture of that! It looks better than I'd imagined, especially with the belt.
It really ties the whole outfit together. Or, you know. Keeps the skirt from falling off.
The belt amost, but not quite, manages to give the entire outfit the air of a poodle kilt.

*headtilts, grinning* I approve.
It was mine, back when I did a lot of community theater. Bye Bye Birdie, in that particular instance.

Huh, too bad he probably can't get into any of my lovely 20s and 30s dresses ...
