China Plate Bustle

Postby gretagretchen » Sun Jul 08, 2012 2:12 pm

So I finally finished my China Plate bustle. It kind of took a different turn than the inspiration image. I actually started this 2 years ago but I made a mistake on the skirt and never fixed it so it sat. I finally decided to abandon parts of the inspiration image to make a more atlanta friendly summer gown.

Inspiration:

I used the 1870s ballgown bodice, 1870s underskirt, the bustled overskirt (not bustled) and underneath is the grand bustle.
