In Progress

I found my bag of bustle dress, horray!  I was unsure of how the underskirt would look so I decided to do a muslin of it.

Turned out so well that I am making it my petticoat. A couple of ruffles arround the hem and it will be perfect. Also I remade the front of the bodice to include some button loops.

It looks better on me than Gertie. She has some problems. (She is very old, she was my grandma's and I dont think anyone even her knows how old Gertie is.)

So I am off to ruffle away and start cutting the underskirt out.
