I continued work on my LM trained hoop bustle. It needed a front panel over the calves/knees to keep the skirts from falling into the open front and looking weird. I made a panel and covered it with 4 rows of white cotton ruffles. Should work :)



Then I actually got a little bit of work done on the VBS. Finished serging all the edges, put in the darts (yeah yeah, it's Butterick), made and applied the neck facing, sewed front to back, and started on the sleeves. I'd love to actually get it finished today.

I've decided to make a VBS. Yes, I'm on the ole bandwagon!

Here's the pattern I have


It's going to be made from the same fabric as my 1890's suit (black with white pinstripes garbardine) and pink cotton bloomers and ruffles. I stole (with permission) the fabric combo idea from the same lady I copied the fabric idea for the 1890's suit. We both had tons of this fabric left over, so why not??
