Simple style bustle skirt in cotton with a drawstring. Great for wearing to western events or cowboy dances. Victorian styled in a gore design but has an adjustable waist.
Made from a cotton broadcloth and is 5 yards of cut fabric. It has a drawstring waist so it is adjustable and will fit a variety of sizes.
The skirt is a basic gore design with a drawstring waistband. This design lays flat in the front and sides and "bustles" or gathers all the yardage in the back producing a lovely gathered effect. There are 2 metal grommets for the drawstring and a grosgrain ribbon as your tie. There are 2 wooden buttons on the ends of the ties so your drawstring won't get lost in the casing. Also, this skirt has an actual waistband for the casing instead of the basic fold over casing. This creates a much more slimming effect and what lady doesn't want that . Skirt is made from 5 yards of fabric and cut in a gore design giving you a narrow waist and lots of fabric at the bottom. There is small ruffle on the bottom of the skirt which gives it a feminine touch.
This would be a great starter skirt if you are getting into living history or reenactment. You can wear this with or without a bustle. It was designed to fit with a bustle but will look divine without one too. It is shown in the pictures without a bustle.
Shown here with the basic camisole, it can be paired with a multitude of blouses for different looks. Very versatile piece for your wardrobe. Also, pair it with a modern cowboy boot and would be awesome dancing on the western dance floor. Think modern country western video star!!
