I love constructing Victorian bustle dresses from silk. The silk bustle poufs have such a special cake frosting like fluffiness. Silk slubs(the nubby lines) add dimension that makes the fabric look very very rich. The dress set is ideal for Victorian events, Gothic and Steampunk events, weddings, balls, teas, promenade, Mardi Gras,Venice Carnival, and many more events. I only make this dress in pure silk to maintain the very rich provocative Victorian lady like looks.
