a finished bustle skirt


Well, it took a week longer than I wanted, but I finally finished my bustle skirt!  Woohoo!  I love how it turned out, and it looks even better when it is on me and there are actual legs to help fill the bottom part out.  There is a ton of fabric in this skirt (8 yards of plaid + 3 yards of foundation), but all the fabrics are so lightweight that is isn't too heavy, and hopefully, it won't be crazy hot.  I expect hot - I just prefer to avoid crazy hot.  

And now, I need to get cracking on that bodice!  Just 2 weeks to go!
