The Challenge: #19 HSF Inspiration - Transdimensional Bustle
Pattern: Used instructions from american duchess to give me a rough guide but mainly lots of drafting and bodging. lol!
Notions: Boning, lacing cord.
How historically accurate is it? There are examples of similar types of support for the era.
Hours to complete: 3 hours-ish. More if you include time I took to make mock up.
First worn: N/A
Total cost: at a guess £20
Well there were several angles of inspiration here. Firstly American Duchess tutorial on how to make a lobster tail bustle. The other being this HSF participants bustle which showed you could make it a more modest size. And finally the TARDIS interior.
And here is how it looks with the skirt over it....
