my black and white grand bustle

Postby laurainlove » Thu Nov 19, 2009 3:48 pm

I finished my Grand Bustle. I am very excited because though I've dabbled in Victorian dresses for the past few years I've only made Natural form dresses!

You can read about the construction on my blog <a href="http://lmvinlove.weebly.com/">here</a>

Whoa! That's a bustle! You could almost wear it on the outside of your clothes, and no one could tell the difference!

thanks for the complements :) It was fun to make something other than traditional white undies (though I like those too!) and because these were all stash fabrics, I feel extra good about this project.

Wyte Phantom, the kitty is too adorable to give up ^.^

Ah well, I think my moggy might complain anyway if I started moving more cats in!

I especially like your bustle as I plan on making mine in black so I can also use it as scandalous outwear!
