Hi everyone. I've got a few questions for all of you. My husband and I are going to dress up this halloween as Jack the Ripper and a prostitute. (he he, I get to be the ripper!) My question is as follows... I've got a modified turkish surcoat that I think might work for his costume. It's scooped out below the breasts and only laces down halfway down the ribs, but I thought I could drape a scarf around his neck and tuck it into the bodice, and with a corset underneath it might work. Also, he'd be wearing a chemise under, and I can improvise a bustle underneath it. Does this sound like it might work? Does anyone know what prostitutes in the 1880's would be wearing? Am I anywhere close? Any other suggestions? Thanks!!!
