So much work on my bustle dress! I'm getting really excited for my Bustle class!
Here's my chemise and drawers. These are from the TV pattern:
I've also got my corset almost done:
The corset is sitting on top of my bustle petticoat, which is in progress. I've got all the pieces cut out and I sewed together the big ruffle and did the tucks on it. I think next time I'll try to make them closer together (these are 1/2" tucks set 1" apart) but otherwise I love it. I'm going shopping today for an eyelet lace for the bottom dust ruffle.
Finally, I got the fabric for my bustle dress! It's so lovely. Here it is along with the buttons I got from Abraham's Lady:
I love how creamy the faille ended up. I also love the buttons, although they're smaller and I may need to get another dozen to have enough (I'll wait and see though). I'm trying to get some silk ribbon to go along as trim, but I haven't decided what color will look good yet. I'd really like something that would match. My bustle classmates are leaning towards a sage green. Dunno.
