I bought this fabric a few weeks ago with a particular DIY project in mind, but because I couldn’t find a pattern of what I wanted I was a bit worried that it might all go to pieces and result in tears and tantrums, so I kept it verrry verry quiet…
I think I’ve mentioned before that I suffer from a serious case of flatbutt, so items like my Portmans ruffle skirt I love because they provide a bit of extra frou-frou to draw the eye away from my ass.
Ever since seeing this bustle bum-bag on etsy I’ve become obsessed with the idea of bustles, and I started looking for modern day bustle clothing.
It’s that usual problem that there were great items that I found, but lots of them seemed to stop about a size ten (because God knows, no-one bigger would want to accentuate any part of their body!)
Finally, I decided that I’d have to bite the bullet and try a bustle DIY.
