I seem to be developing a theme here where I post when I sew things!

Anyhoo, as you may have learned I really have a thing with historical fashion. So, fulfilling a life-long dream, I decided to make a Victorian bustle dress.

A-like so.

And a video, so you people who want to see how prettily it moves!



There are still a few things about it I want to work on, but all in all, I think it turned out really well. I feel very pretty in!

You really have a great talent. It has to take a lot of skill to put something like that together...I mean, it's a lot more than people would think. Job well done! And it looks very pretty,

Holy fuck! That's really amazing. You did a fantastic job with it. You a fashion major? (Sorry, can't remember if you mentioned your major before or not.)

You should do a sexy steampunk outfit. And then send it to me.

Thanks everyone! It was a lot of fun to wear - well worth the effort in making it!

No, I'm not a fashion major. I'm taking Theatre Studies in Design and Production. I really want to be a costume designer when I grow up. And maybe a steam shovel. :-P

I've never done steam punk, but I do have a Princess Leia costume that certain people find very sexy. Well, people I hang out with. aka Nerds.

:-D

Haha ^_^ That's great! One of my friends is really into bustle skirts. I feel like I should ask some intelligent-sounding clothing-design question here, but I'm not the dressmaker in my group.

You'd make a fantastic costume designer- I'd hire you in a heartbeat. I've heard bustles are very hard to pull off, so great job.
