It's been said before, but this is a fantastic creation!
Beautifully tailored, and I love the detail of the cream stripe offset just off the edge of the cuffs, and the beautiful soft cascading bustle topping the sharply pleated underskirt.
The slight cf gaping makes you wonder, was that a common problem with larger and larger bustles being swapped in Grin? were ladies walking around with increasingly more stretched and wrinkly bodice fronts Shocked?

All your dresses on your portfolio blog are absolutely beautiful, but everyone already knows that  Grin
I look forward to seeing more!

I reason why it gaps is because the actual bustle drape is attached to the jacket. If you look at period reference, most bustle drapes are attached in at the waist, and the jacket covers the top of this with some nice pleats that fan out from the side back panels. My design came from a period fashion plate, and as it seems, although it works on paper, it doesn't work 100% in practice! I had to change other strange bits of the original fashion plate design because my teacher (who is a very experienced cutter and draper) and I could not interpret parts of it into something that is actually sewable!

that does make a lot of sense. i made a bustle dress a year or so ago, and the pattern I used said to attach the it to the back of the bodice.. but it just tented it out in the back.

I guess the non-translating fashion plate is another fine example of someone designing without any actual experience in cutting or sewing  Tongue
