This project took some time to finish because I had to PAINT the feathers onto the bustle. I have no real talent when it comes to painting but it was a lot cheaper than buying peacock feathers.
The corset it make up of three different fabrics and was inspired by the India Blue Peacock. The corset pattern is based off of a tutorial posted by Camilla T. on Cut Out + Keep.
This was a real fun project to do and I like how it turned out. Perhaps it will be my Halloween costume.
