The bustle is done!

I finished my bustle last night (well, mostly, anyway). I wound up draping a pattern over the cage I had made, and drafting from there. It's not perfect, because I didn't trust my pattern, so it has a little gathering at the bottom back (which I need to stitch in place). But it makes a sort of cute ruffle, which I like. I also still need to find a buckle of some sort for the waistband, since it's just pinned right now.

But overall, I'm very happy with it. It's huge!
