Finished project: Kerry’s Steampunk bustle

I promised to post about Kerry’s steampunk bustle a few weeks ago, but my life got busy and my computer crashed my teaparty, so it didn’t happen. ¬†Better late than never though: here’s the finished bustle!

Love that bustle silhouette!

The smooth, sleek front

And the super ruffled back


I absolutely love the ruffles! I want to make something completely covered in them!

It was a super fun project, for an absolutely lovely client.


  1. I can’t decide what I like most about it… but I guess it’s the ruffles, too. But the smooth front is also very pretty…

  2. This is so cool- the shape, the stripes, the colors. Everything. Very cool. How do you advertise your private sewing, and do you carefully choose your comissions? (I think I asked this before in jest, but now I’m genuinely interested.)

  3. It’s wonderful!!! I want to make my own now.
    The colors are beautiful and the ruffles (drools) are calling to me.

  4. Madame Ornata says

    Gorgeous! The stripes are very effective and it is so beautifully made.

  5. Stella says

    Wow, I love those ruffles. Those stripes were made for ruffles.
