RH964 — Ladies’ Padded Bustle


Victorian Bustle Pad sewing pattern



Get that Big Bustle look without boning!

Tired of putting on your bustle in the parking lot of the event?  All that boning too bulky for you?  You need our padded bustle pattern based on an original pattern from the 1870s. This tiny wonder gives the “centaur bum” look of those big bustles, but is soft and collapses so you can pack it in the smallest luggage.  And it’s still 100% period-accurate!

Fits all sizes.  Detailed instructions, period tailoring directions, embellishment suggestions, and historical notes are also included.

thread, stay tape, fabric scraps (or horsehair)
