I’ve been thinking about lace vomit in the back of my mind as I try to work out what outfits I’d like to commission Isabeau for Mr. Demandypants. He requires copious spills of scrunched-up trim.
So far I’m thinking about something combining elements from ACH-ZM and Ruvo-Z.
The Ruvo-Z shirt appeals to me, especially with the leg-o’-mutton sleeves and gratuitous slashing/lacing, but I’m thinking pale pink instead, although the white/pewter look is very classy. Jareth’s version needs to have bigger poofy parts on the tops of the sleeves.
I also like the Ruvo-Z corset because certain individuals can never have too many.

I’d make it separate from the shirt and more like a wraparound skirt: fuller, more of a distressed slashed black tulle petticoat understory, topped with at least five or six raw squizzled ruffles.
From this outfit, I select several elements:
