I told myself I wasn't going to attempt to sew anything else before Europe, but yesterday, I cleaned up my sewing room (I even vacuumed!) and found myself studying the bustle dress I started and then put aside last fall. The skirt is still being naughty, so I'm going to do the bodice/overskirt, and then come back to the skirt. Maybe I'll repleat it. I wish I had more fabric, but alas. Or maybe I'll take the leftover fabric I was going to use for the ruffles at the hem, and attempt to incorporate that into more width for the skirt (since that's the real problem. Who knows. But I pulled out the pattern that I think I used for the bustle dresses I made last year, so hopefully those will work. I'm seeing a show tonight, but I'm planning to mock that up tomorrow. 

As a reminder, this is the dress:


I'm thinking if I drive myself absolutely crazy, I may be able to finish this and a bonnet to go with my 1830s dress in time for Vic Fest on March 23rd.
