Whoops. Posted a question earlier and the images were way too big, sorry. uwu;;
So I am doing a Lottie cosplay as well, and I was planning on using a pannier since the silhouette of her dress most closely resembles a 1750s French court dress.
However the issue arises that her dress is extremely voluminous in the back, something a pannier would not give.
Further, it is shown later she is wearing a hoopskirt that resembles those most closely those in 1860.Reference 3
I doubt a petticoat will give that much volume so I was thinking of constructing a separate, large bustle that I would attach separately above my pannier. However I am not sure how I would construct such a piece, nor do I really know where to start. Any advice?
