Stripy bustle!

A long time ago, I wished that I had a set of underwear for every era so I could just worry about making gowns. I don't know why, but I've almost never enjoyed making things like corsets or hoops. I've come to accept it, and since my time is at such a premium these days, I've started commissioning the things I don't really want to make. Life is too short.

I've really wanted to do a bustle dress for a while, but one of the things holding me back is not having a proper corset or a bustle. I have a really crappy Victorian corset which was one of the first things I made - it's serviceable but really really terrible. I recently commissioned one. If I didn't post about it, I'll post soon.

Most recently, my friend Lindsey ( opened up for commissions and she agreed to make one for me!

She just finished and it's adorable!  She used the Laughing Moon 112 pattern.

Hooray, thanks Lindsey!
