You may remember that I'm busy patterning and constructing an 1889 dress for my Draping class with Marianne Krostyne. For the understructure of my dress I constructed this bustle pad using the Laughing Moon pattern. I was really pleased with the way it went together. Hopefully the shape of it will look really nice under the skirt.
I made this bustle pad of a beautiful plum purple cotton sateen. It's really a lovely fabric.
I'm planning to add a row of knife pleated fabric along the bottom eventually. I have to purchase some more fabric first.
