2012 Bustle Gown Sewing Project
This project was approximately sixteen days in the making. I am going to be breaking everything down in segments over the next few days and/or weeks. We will be looking at pattern reviews, dyeing techniques, recycle & reuse on special fabrics, sewing tips, and finishing touches. For now, I will say I am glad it is finished, and I can move onto my next project. Some pieces were quick and easy, some were time consuming and tedious at best. There are three pieces total, the fitted bodice, the apron/bustle combo, and the foundation skirt. Primary colors are "raisin" and "plum", with black accents. More to follow!
