This costume was inspired by the peacock, The Animator's Wife's favorite bird. Careful consideration was given to the stitch patterns so that it would look as feathery as possible.
There's actually some hidden shaping in the bust to give this just the perfect fit, and it closes in the back with three delicate buttons.
I think everyone thinks of peacocks when they think of pineapples, so of course that was the stitch pattern of choice for the skirt.
