The skirt is an elliptical shape. It's like a cross between a hoop and bustle. The footprint of the hoop is egg shape and not round. Most skirts can be altered to fit. You'll need a full skirt, add a little more, and gather more to the back then anywhere else. http://www.trulyvictorian.net/tvxcar...5&cat=1&page=1http://www.trulyvictorian.net/tvxcar...2&cat=1&page=1
Most any fairytale dress pattern can be used for the top. You'll need a strapless/backless bra.
