Tips & Tricks

Victorian Corset with Petticoat circa 1870-1900,
Bustle circa 1886


Bustle

No steels are required by this pattern however we used two 30cm spring steels down the length on either side to lessen the curve which developed down the backside and over the buttocks. Perhaps we stuffed the horizontal channels too full.

We used polyfill pillow stuffing purchased from a local fabric store and it took two bags.

Estimated sewing time: 5 hrs
Additional Materials: Fiber Fill/quilt batting (not sold by us)

Please Note: While this is a Laughing Moon pattern the bustle is not designed to fit under the Laughing Moon Victorian Skirt pattern.
