Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted a bustle dress! Desperately! But it has always been cost prohibitive to buy a pre-made one and I was never confident enough in my sewing ability to try and make one by myself. Well i'm finally taking the plunge!

I only have the undies done but I'm starting to feel more confident. The chemise and corset are laughing moon mercantile patterns and the petticoat is a truly victorian natural form pattern.


I managed to get my measurements to a comfortable 46-35-46! Yay for squishy internal organs! We had it laced tighter but I was pretty sure i was losing blood flow to the lower half of my body.

Please ignore my hair and facial expression, it was late.

the back is a little wonky but that's because fat can only be displaced so far and spiral steel likes to bend. Perhaps its time to invest in regular steel...

Awesome that you're going for it! I'm also working on a natural form outfit, so I'll be looking forward to seeing how yours comes out!
I know this is just the underwear bits and I don't know your plans for the over dress, but you did mention wanting a bustle dress so... natural form won't have a bustle (hence the "natural"). A natural form petticoat doesn't have the space and length in the back for a bustle to fit under it. The dresses/skirts have some interesting drapes in the back though so maybe that's what you're referring to instead of a full bustle?

no i am aware that natural form doesn't have an actual bustle, just lots of fullness but honestly with a butt like mine who needs a bustle? I figured a natural form would be more practical for a beginner not mention to wear out an about. Riding in a car with a corset is hard enough i'm not sure if i am ready for getting stabbed in the but with wire, too.

I really like this. I've been thinking about making my own for a while now, too, as I want it for my wedding next year but don't want to have to pay out the nose even though I'm sure the price is relative to what it takes to create. Are you using a pre-made pattern?

This looks great, but squishy internal organs can translate to crushy internal organs, so please be careful. It's lovely! I bet the whole outfit turns out amazing.

I'm looking for Simplicity 6340 (the 1970's sailor dress). PM me if you've got a copy to swop or sell! Cheesy
