Hey costumers! I'm looking for a tutorial or something on how to make one of those victorian overskirts that are a semicircular gathered bib with a bustle in back.
Kind like the front of the first one on this page but i want it to hang lower in front and a different bustle: http://www.demifashions.com/catalog/demipatterns.html
the only thing I can figure is to basically make a whole top skirt and then just tuck it up and gather it in the back for the bustle?
basically, what I'm doing is retooling the alice dress i made for my daughter into a victorian little girls dress for "Christmas Carol." I got a darker calico and then a solid darker blue to do a ruffle and I thought that shape would work well with the alice dress and tone down the light blue. I'm also changing the sleeves and adding lace and buttons etc to the top of the dress but that's another matter entirely.
Any help would be appreciated.
