adventures in costuming
a little bit of this, a little bit of that...
I'm trying to be more diligent about this costuming thing so I've been working on my bustle a little everyday. I figure an hour or two of work a day is better than nothing. Just trying to avoid that last minute scrambling before CC.

So far I've cut a new panel to fit my pre-cut boning. It seemed the simplest option since the whole point was to not have to cut and tip boning. So my bustle will be 1" larger than it's supposed to be. Whatever. Tonight I finished sewing up the new panel, all the bone casings neatly stiched down and everything. Now to work on the petticoat part...

I'd like to finish off the first panel too. The panel looks so darn nice, I really took my time making sure it was tidy looking. It's just 1" too narrow. I've got some extra hoop wire around the house (just no tips) so I thought I'd whip it up as a simple bustle and sell it on e-bay or something. Waste not, want not, right?! :>
