I popped a full netted skirt over the steel panniers to soften the lines. Then when I put the petticoat and overskirt on over that, it looks more elegant and less like I draped fabric over two boxes! If you want to see, it's HERE and here's a side view for the hell of it.

The ball is tonight and I can't find my box of feathers since we moved. Not sure where I stashed it, but I think there's a big red ostrich plume in there. Will continue the search.

I didn't notice any boxiness in the last photos but I still think it's very fluffy and elegant.

I recently made an extra wide pannier about this size and I'm having problems with it being droopy. Any tips?
