Wow, thank you all so much! I loved wearing the pvc bustle gown and am so happy that I finally got around to making it after all these years.

The most popular question is: Was the pvc hard to sew?
Answer: Not at all! The underside is fabric-backed, so when you sew right sides together, it's like using any other fabric. It's not really thick or stiff. I'd say the feel is like a slightly thicker satin taffeta to handle.

When it was time to sew on the trim, I took someone's idea and snapped a Teflon foot onto the machine (gotten at my local sewing shop for a few dollars).

Other popular question: What patterns did you use?
Answer: All Truly Victorian! I used TV 416 ballgown bodice (sleeves left off), TV 305 bustle overskirt, and TV 261 underskirt.
