Dressing A Victorian Lady

A Victorian Lady would wear it all,
She'd never forget a glove or a parasol.

From the feet up she would dress,
Always the goal to look her best.

Stocking and shoes, chemise and drawers,
corset and hoops, but wait-there's more!

Corset cover, petticoats and don't forget the bustle,
With so many layers to wear, she must certainly hustle!

Her ensembles will change for every affair,
 And she must not dally, one must be there!

Her dress, her hat, and perhaps a fan,
All for the sake, to impress a man.

To be the utmost beauty is her master plan
In hopes for marriage, he shall ask for her hand.
