Laughing Moon #105 bustle skirt and drape
I chose the size based only on my waist measurement. There is plenty of hip room but if you have a lot of hip spring I would make a muslin. This skirt consists of a front drape, lined back bustle/fall and a built in bustle pillow. The instructions are easy to follow and I had no issues putting this together. The bustle is lined with netting for extra poof. It also uses tapes so you get the right drape in the back. Instead of using hooks and bars on the closure/placket I used strips of velcro and one hook and bar for the waistband. Easy! I decorated the bustle with lots of odds and ends of ribbon I had laying around. I used sequined fringe on the front drape.
The picture on the envelope is a bit misleading. On the mannequin the bloomers look like fitted boy shorts. Nope. They are poofy and cute, but not fitted. If you choose to make that specific view they will not look like that fitted. The pattern piece is exactly the same as for the poofy bloomers. I made mine with elastic at the leg openings and trimmed them with lace. Once again I used my waist measurement for fitting. These are pretty roomy in the hips. Easy to sew and fun to wear.
