Description

Made for my Draping Class’s “Bustle Day.” I was inspired by Mina Harker’s Blue Green dress embroidered with laurel leaves. This thing is made of entirely out of muslin. I also made a bustle pad for more volume. I like big bustles and I cannot lie.

    Hahaha, I like the bustle humour. This project is certainly aptly named.

      Thank you so much! I finished this in one class, so a little less than two hours? I had to drape leg o mutton sleeves after I did this bustle. :)
