Mz Mannequin continues to thoroughly enjoy modeling and combining different pieces as they are added to the Portrait Couture closet. This is the new yet old (vintage!) pettiskirt recently acquired off Ebay. [Me +late night+ Ebay shopping = VERY dangerous!] The sheer polyester chiffon is exquisitely soft and buttery to the touch. It’s very, very full and fluffy, and feels just delicious swishing about. One of the things I ADORE about this piece is the adjustable waist: with the string tightened all the way it goes down to approximately a size 6/8, but with the drawstring loosed the waist goes out to 44″, approximately a size 20. The waist cincher is also very flexible piece in that it allows you to wear your own bra, and the lacing in the back accomodates a range of sizes. At it’s smallest it’s about a size 10, but with the stays loosened probably goes up to a size 18 or 20. The bra is NOT in the Portrait Couture closet (sorry, ladies: it’s my own)–I just used it for this photo because it goes so well with the skirt!
