I am working on a new steampunk outfit and am going with a long fishtail skirt. I really like the ruching on this http://pinterest.com/pin/533465518330754856/ . My question is- how slimming is it? I am a bit pear shaped and want something flattering to my figure. The entire outfit will be a bit more on the industrial style side of steampunk. I want it to be pretty, but I do not want to just fall back on ruffles to make my lower half interesting.
