So after a bit of detective work I think I came up with something that might just suit.
Here it is.
I did have a look at making something from scratch cos i do sew LOL.
But actually I had the perfect thing ~ a vintage french maids apron that I have had for a few years and always wondered what I would do with.
So I took some vintage roses fabric
and started the frou frou business lol.
Which included 2 layers of tightly gathered netting. Then I attached some pink velvet to the waitstband and made a large detachable corsage for the waistband.
