Bustle skirt tutorial

This tutorial is a mix of 3 other bustle skirt DIY that I found on the net. You will need: light weight cotton fabric, lace, and some pins.

First cut 3 rectangles of fabric: the first 1m x 25,5 cm, the second 1,5m x 30,5 cm, the tird 2m x 35,5 cm.
For the waistband: cut a rectangle of fabric measuring your waist measurement (where you want the skirt to rest) + 63 cm x 15 cm. Mark 1,5 cm of seam allowance on all edges.

1- Make the bottom edges of the rectangles round, sew lace around the bottom edges and gather the top of the rectangles to make the ruffles.

In this picture all the layers have been gathered. Seam allowance was marked on the waist band.



2-Sew across the gathered line to keep the ruffle in place.


3-Repeat the process in all layers making them 1,5 cm shorter than the previous one.
4-Sew the 3 layers together and mark the center.



5-Waistband: Ion the seam allowance and fold/press the waist band in half.


6- Mark the center of the waistband and pin it to the center of the skirt. Sew the waistband in place.



Done!
