madamemodiste: (I love bustles)
[personal profile] madamemodiste
Since we talked about linings for bustle jackets, when I came across this one on Ebay, I wanted to share. Isn't it pretty!? Imagine how lovely before wear and time took it's toll...|65%3A1|39%3A1|240%3A1318

In addition, here is an extant dolman and jacket with silk linings I saved pics of at some point from Ebay or something

I wrote to Heather and asked her about the cotton lining for her new bustle coat pattern. Since she made the pattern, she'll be able to explain her choice. I'll share her wisdom when she responds! It's always good to learn :D

Wow, Heather is up early this morning! Here's what she said:

"I pretty much line everything with cotton by default. I find the slippery stuff so miserable to work with, that it just isn't worth it. Also, I don't know that there is any prequilted slinky fabrics available. I made one coat with a broadcloth lining, and a cotton quilt batting that is like a felt blanket. Then I made the second coat with the prequilted stuff, and it was so much easier to make.

You can of course, you any lining fabric that you like. Or if you are worried about the sleeve and keeping costs down, maybe only line the sleeves with silk."

I like the idea of doing just the sleeves in a slinky fabric. I think that will work for me! I know that girl who used to run Creations L'Escarpolette made a bustle coat with a pre-quilted satin lining, and it was amazing. I still have the drool-worthy photos. I wonder where she got it?
