1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Victorian bustle gown + corset. [Image heavy!] on: February 03, 2010 04:38:14 PM
Wow, I finally get around to posting this, almost a year after it was finished! Okay, so at my past school there's a tradition of having a dress-up day in school a few days before you graduate. Me being me, I of course made this into an excuse to take on a silly large sewing project and spend way too much money on fabric.

Anyways. I don't really have all that much to say about it, except that it was oh, so much fun, and that it never would have been possible without my mother. The skirt was a burda pattern, but the bodice and corset were both made from vintage patterns printed from teh interwebz! Enlarging and following those was probably the hardest part to be honest.

Either way, pics!

I didn't actually wear this white skirt under it all, just wanted to keep some dignity for the pictures. xD

Yeah, making a proper bustle for all of this would have taken way too long. Gotta love tulle!

And I actually did end up wearing this dress once again. Or at least one part of it. The overskirt got to be a piece of my steampunk Halloween costume last year. Excuse the silly picture, best I've got. xD
