Beautiful embroidered taffeta bustle overskirt to add to your steampunk or Victorian collection. You can put this on top of so many things to add drama and style to your outfit.
This is a great addition to your Victorian or Steampunk wardrobe. Or pair it with any skirt or a pair of your favorite jeans and dare to be different. Awesome addition!
Made from an embroidered taffeta fabric, this bustle addition drapes nicely and has a lot of bustling at the sides and back. This specific design is from The Natural Form period of the Bustle era. During this time the styles were long and lean. I drafted this pattern based on historical guidelines so it is a period correct addition to your reenactment wardrobe.
The apron in the front is cut long and slim. It has waist darts to help it skim the waist and hips on your body giving it a really lean look .The overskirt is cut into gores which is another slimming effect. The sides are pleated to give graceful folds to the front.
The back is cut very long and then it is pleated at the sides for a nice bustling effect. The length of this overskirt is pleated and bustled into the sides and the side fronts to give this overskirt apron lovley folds of busteling fabric. The overskirt closes in the side back with a nice placket and hook and bar closure.
Size is determined by wiast and hip measurement. Because this style is very slendar, I will need a hip measurement so I can properly fit the skirt and busteling. Please give me your waist and hip measurement when ordering.
Colors Available: Lavendar (shown), Light Green, Burgundy, Olive Green, Golden Pink, Ivory, Light Blue, Navy. Please inquire regarding other colors.
The design on the embroidery will differ. Some of the taffetas have swirls some are floral.
This would be great to layer over an existing skirt for your Steampunk persona and add to your wardrobe. Would be good for your saloon girl persona or layered over an existing Victorian era skirt. Very versatile piece to spruce up your wardrobe with.
**Please note: I happily do plus sizes for an additional charge. If your waist/ hip measurement falls outside the 45/47 range please eamil me so I can put up a special listing for you to include the extra charge. Please email me if you need to discuss this further.**
This is a custom made item in your color choice. I will need 2 weeks to complete your skirt before sending.
