I received my order shockingly quickly given that it was custom-sized (and actually pretty quickly in any case), and of course immediately wanted to wear my new skirt. We had a day of unseasonably cool weather that pretty much sealed the deal. Since this was a workday I wanted to make the outfit a little more casual, and I think this is down-right sporty....you know, in as much as an outfit with a ruffled bustle skirt can be sporty.
I also wore my lighter petticoat, which I made a little while ago and is pretty lackluster in the poof department. My mom also claims it looks like a "demonic tutu" but I think that is neither a bad thing nor relevant.

A note: I do in fact regularly wear bloomers, when not wearing tights or leggings as they are marvelous practical for preventing chafing rashes. Made out of light cotton they are not materially warming, but I think I will manufacture some flannel ones come fall.
