Feathers

For the feathers in the chest I followed painzang's tutorial on YouTube. It was very helpful!

The feathers were an important part of the overall design

Skirt

For the multi-layered skirt, I used the top of a cylinder. This can be done using a cylinder primitive, and using masks and polygroups to isolate the top part section. Then I used radial symmetry to give it that classic, folded look.

I sculpted over it a bit to make it less repetitive, then copied and rotated the SubTool slightly to give it more layers.

For the top layer, I used an edge loop and isolated the section to give it that solid fabric edge. For the rest of the top layer, I lowered the division level and used fibermesh using a small structure of crossed cylinders to simulate a thin net.

Shoes

The shoes were done by extracting their various elements and giving them some quick folds using the same tools as before.
