After disappearing for three years, the bustle reappeared in 1883 with a new shape. Between 1884 and 1887 the Victorian bustle reached its greatest proportions. A little lower than the 1870s bustle, it projected out and at such an angle that detractors claimed that a tea tray could rest upon it. Still, it was critical to make fashionable dresses hang properly.
This pattern includes options for a full-length bustle and for the shorter bustles common in the last years of this period. It features removable steels and an optional detachable flounce.
Please read all instructions before touching your fabric. There are tips along the way to make your life easier! You will need hoop steel and U tips (to finish the ends) to complete this pattern.
