I finally started this dress. I might have done it sooner but I needed to make a new skirt pattern. It is based on the one from my green ruffle bustle dress, but altered to remove the demi-train and make it walking length.

Here I am wearing the skirt over my green lobster bustle and only one petticoat because I am lazy. When it is for reals I will be wearing more.

Right now it is hanging up to let any extra length stretch out before hemming. I will definitely stiffen the hem with a deep facing. I may or may not add a self ruffle. Depends on how much fabric I have left.

Thanks! I like the angle my current bustle gives.

Pretty! I love the color, and the weight and drape look really nice!
