Victorian bustle skirt in a slender design. Beautiful taffeta or satin make this bustle overskirt great for your Victorian or Steampunk closet.
Made from a satin or 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 at the sides 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. There are inside ties that are adjustable and you can adjust the amount of bustle you get in the back. 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.
