Custom Made Patchwork Ruffle Bustle Overskirt - 3 Layer, Sz. XS - Your Choice of Colors

Custom Made Patchwork Ruffle Bustle Overskirt - 3 Layer, Sz. XS - Your Choice of Colors
This listing is for the ruffle bustle overskirt only. Coordinating items may be available separately in my shop. =) Please note that I can almost never exactly duplicate a patchwork bustle I've made previously. You can certainly request a similar color scheme, but due to the limited nature of my scraps, I cannot make identical copies.

This skirt is custom made and will take approximately 4 weeks to complete after purchase.

As a note on sizing, the size designations XS, S, M, & L denote the size of the actual ruffle coverage, not the size range the waistband will fit. ***THIS LISTING IS ONLY FOR A PATCHWORK BUSTLE IN SIZE XS, WHICH HAS 12" OF RUFFLES AT THE WAISTBAND.*** Larger sizes are available in separate listings.

This frilly little overskirt features 3 layers of pleated patchwork panels, all completely serged and secured to prevent fraying. All fabrics used are durable upholstery weight fabrics. They're serged around the edges and hand pleated onto a 1" wide waistband made from polypropylene belting. The waistband closes with a set of D-rings just like a belt, so it's pretty adjustable. I have D-rings in stock in brass and nickel.

This custom order thing is something new I'm trying out on these. Here's the deal. I cannot allow you to choose every single fabric I use in these. I pull from both my corset fabric stock of 240+ fabrics and my scrap bins, which can be limited and random. I can use anywhere from 6 to a dozen or more different fabrics, and the time involved in photographing every one would make these ridiculously expensive. What I can do is allow you to choose a color set from the following list (if you need something else really specific, please convo me first. I'm limited by what's available in upholstery fabrics, so colors like teal, magenta, and often silver are not usually available). You may select as few as 3 or as many as you'd like from the following color list. Please also keep in mind that gold is a very common accent color, so it's likely a few fabrics in black, blue, green, and red will have some gold in them. If you would like a photo of the bustle layout to approve before I start stitching, just ask.

Color List:
Brown (you can specify dark, light, or just plain old brown)

You may also select your choice of belting from black, olive, ivory, tan, dark blue, burgundy, and brown.

If you have a preference for the thread color I use to trim out the edges, please also make a note of that for me. Otherwise, I'll choose one I think looks best.

Actual garment measures:
Total length at the longest ruffle: 15" including the waistband
Waist: I can make the belt on these to fit any waist size, but please keep in mind that the larger the waist/upper hip, the less coverage you'll get from the ruffles (it is photographed on a 24" waist dressform for reference)
Ruffles cover 12" of the waistband
