This time I tried, yet again, to make a bustle for my vampire dress. Only this time, I knew not to use heavy velvet!
Remember this? This was the bustle I tried for the steampunk dress and it was just way too heavy.
This time I was smarter :) I still had one piece of fabric leftover from the steampunk underskirt, and it was just enough to make the bustle. I didnt use a bustle pillow this time as that would have meant recalculating the entire dress. We're going for comfortable this year :)
This is the result. I like it :) It's not quite finished, the front is open as the fabric wasnt enough to make a closed bustle so I will add some of the purple/black fabric there, and maybe some highlights where the seams are showing in the bustle. It's all a work in progress... but it's getting there.
It has to be done in about 10 days and I still have to finish the bustle, make the handbag and the hat, and also work on the zombie dress. Aaarghh!
