Striped Bustle Gown by azdaja Striped Bustle Gown by azdaja
This is my first real bustle gown :D
It's made from old vintage material (I think is from 60ies). It's sort of a striped bordeaux satin...the strips are printed on it.
it has three parts: skirt, bustle drapping and a jacket.
The jacket is fasened in front with row of satin ribbons. I even redecorated my old top hat and added mesh and some feathers :)

I wore this dress on Halloween party and ti feels great!

The picture of the underpinings will be posted later :)

*it is nice to comment before you add this to your favorites ;)

Stripes can be a pain, and if you've ever constructed anything 'Victorian' you know it's not an easy endeavor either. Take a look at this beautiful Victorian gown! Striped Bustle Gown by ~azdaja ( Featured by ohnojaylo )

Absolutely gorgeous. Having both horizontal and vertical stripes makes the dress more visually interesting, so great job with that.

Wow, great costume. I love the shape of the neckline (although it looks better when you actually have a "bosom", so I tend to do high collars myself). Making victorian costume is a lot of work but so rewarding!

Absolutely gorgeous! I'm amazed at how good you are at sewing.. By the way, this dress makes me think of Helena Bonham Carter's dress in Sweeny Todd, you know, the one she wears when she's dreaming.

I'll be making a 1870's bustle walking dress for halloween (it'll be my summer project :) ) but I'm little worried about the over skirt (bustle skirt) Any advice for the drapping?
