    . I purchased a paper copy of pattern Burda 7880 Victorian bustle dress on line from an e bay seller – with regrets as they have not responded to my e mails. I’ve no instructions for the skirt and overskirt. I’m really stumped how it all fits together, especially where the back yoke fits, and even where the skirt opening is – is there a zip?

    I am desparate for help on this project. Hoping you can be the one to help me please?

      Hi, I can try since I don’t have the pattern at hand right now. I left a slit in the skirt and button closure for a start. I can try to post pictures if I find them on my pc in the next days

      so I finally did uploaded this project on my page – hope the pictures help you to figure it out. The yoke is inside the overskirt, you can see it in the bustling pictures. If you do it like this you can flatten the overskirt for transport and it is easy to iron while flat. I did the two skirt separately with a slit on the side/ back.
