My bustle skirts are cute – but poof them out in back, and they become adorable! Here’s the piece you need to do that.
This is the made-to-order version of my bustle petticoat, available in more lengths and more colors than the standard version! It’s only available with purchase of full gown, or if you catch me when I’m about to start cutting and sewing a new batch of bustles.
I intended this bustle as a foundation piece – but I do believe it’s gorgeous enough to wear by itself too! It’s a tie on style bustle with long ribbons and elastic in back for a snug, comfortable fit. If you want your bustle to just brush the floor, measure from your high hips to the floor in your shoes, and round down to choose your size. If you want it to be ankle length, order one or two sizes down.
Most bustles are made from tulle. But I’ve found that tulle goes soft (and limp) the instant it gets exposed to humidity. Limp bustles are bad! So I chose a fabric that will stay fluffy for you for a very long time – crystal organza that has been heat treated for stiffness. It is still comfy against the skin, but it’s a lot stiffer than the organza you’ve seen before (if you are familiar with the fabric).
This bustle looks amazing worn with any skirt from my “Bustle” line. Click here to view them all.
