Oh my GOD! I love it! I want it!
Did you draft your own pattern?


The design was taken from some period fashion plates, and the design was draped on the stand. There was no flat pattern making/drafting as such, but I did make the patterns by moulding them on the dress stand.

That is just beautiful, great work!

Forgive my ignorance, but what is CF?  I didn't see anything unsightly on there so I couldn't figure it out.

CF = Centre Front. On the jacket the closure doesn't quite meet. This is because of all the drape over the bustle is heavy & causing drag. I have to reinforce the closure with a tab I think!

I love this dress!!  I'd like to see more of your work...

All the stuff I do for college/TAFE is on  my portfolio - http://sarahmckinleycostumes.blogspot.com

This is lovely. Will it be worn anywhere?

Hopefully it will make it on stage in our annual college costume show in August next year. It depends on whether we can find models, and whether there is enough room on the lineup. Every year, 2nd years do their own version of a bustle and they always seem to get put on the backburner because they are made so far in advance.

Everyone else, thanks for your lovely comments!!
