V337: Bustle Decoration Inspiration

Dec 20, 2012 7 comments
I've been so bad about blogging recently.  So much for 365 straight days of blogging! I will make it to 365, but it won't be by January 1st, haha!

Anywho, I thought I would share the gowns that are inspiring my Green Acres Gown decoration ideas...

The Met, 1871
Young Ladies Looking at Japanese Objects--Tissot, 1869
From the book "Les Petites Dames de Mode: An Adventure in Design"
The Met: 1881–84 
I have all the lines marked out on the underskirt, now it's to the binding, the pleating, the gathering, the fluting,  and attaching all of these to the skirt...


  1. I love these dresses! So elegant.

  2. The book "Les Petites Dames de Mode: An Adventure in Design" is AMAZING. Everyone must get it.
