I was inspired by the ladies from Damsel in this Dress to make my own DIY version of their awesome scrappy bustles!  I made my bustle using upholstery samples and scraps I was given last year.  I love how my bustle turned out and got tons of compliments on it when I wore it to the Medieval Faire Smiley

The rest of my costume...all DIYed!

I made a video tutorial for the bustle- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYrpWvOCIVg

Here's a video I made with footage of the Medieval Faire in Norman that we went to!  It's so much fun and me and the hubby go in costume every year Smiley

Very awesome, I go to a lot of medieval fayres and the people who handmake their outfits always look so much better  Grin

Really nice! Good use for all those long strips of beautiful leftover stuff. You've got me thinking I might try to produce a mini scrappy bustle skirt for the festival season.  Smiley
