Costume - Victorian bustle petticoat workshop



On this workshop, you will make your own Victorian Bustle Petticoat. The calico petticoat has two elements, the lobster tail bustle which is made with the use of channels and boning and the full petticoat which has layers of frills across the back and can be finished with a machine embroidered edge. The petticoat can not only be used for theatrical costume, it can be suitable for bridal wear, would be perfect for Steampunk events or could be adapted and used as part of a Cosplay outfit. This is a mid-Victorian style underpinning, circa 1870s.
