Learn to create this essential 1880s undergarment in just one day!

In this 1-day workshop we will be making an 1880s bustle to wear under your Victorian bustle dress!

Live and in real time I will show you all the steps to create your own bustle from scratch!

An easy and fun afternoon project!



The class will be taught LIVE in a one day workshop (2.5h), where we will sew together in real time!

You will be asked to prepare your fabric pieces before class, so we can start straightaway!

You will of course have the opportunity to ask questions during class, which I will answer live!

You will be required to purchase your materials and pattern separately. A complete list of materials will be emailed to you when you book your place.

I also have a special package deal from for you, which includes the paper pattern, steel boning, boning end caps and bias tape, so you only have to add the fabric of your choice!

The pattern used in this class is "NP08 Bustle 1883-1888", and comes in one size only.
