Steampunk Ruffle Bustle Top Skirt - 3 Layer, Sz. L - Russet, Brown, & Gold Patchwork - Fits 33"-65" Waist or Upper Hip

Steampunk Ruffle Bustle Top Skirt - 3 Layer, Sz. L - Russet, Brown, & Gold Patchwork - Fits 33&quot;-65&quot; Waist or Upper Hip
This listing is for the ruffle bustle overskirt only. Coordinating items may be available separately in my shop. =)

***NOTE: I make these in batches! The one you receive will be identical in color scheme, but may feature slightly different fabrics and a slightly different fabric placement layout, although it will be very, very similar. Every patchwork bustle I make is unique!***

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. Sizing on these has nothing to do with modern clothing sizes. The size you need depends on the amount of coverage you would like from the ruffles. ***This skirt is a Sz. L, which has 32" of ruffles at the waistband.***

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. The waistband closes with a set of metal D-rings, just like a belt, so it's pretty adjustable. The belts on these also work wonders for attaching things like pouches, skirt hikes, mug straps, and con badge clips to beneath your corset.

Color Scheme: Russet, Brown, & Gold
Thread Trim Color: Russet
Belting Color: Brown
D-Ring Metal Finish: Brass
Bustle Size: Large (32" across)

Actual garment measures:
Total length at the longest ruffle: 15" including the waistband
Waist: The belt will close on any waist/upper hip measurement of 33" through 72", just keep in mind that the larger the waist/upper hip, the less coverage you'll get from the ruffles
Ruffles cover 32" of the waistband (they flare out a bit past this as they fall)

This bustle will best fit:
Waist (or upper hip, if you like to wear yours a tad lower) measurements of 33"-72". At 33", it will close completely at the front, more like a tutu. The belt will close on any measurement of up to 72", but keep in mind that the ruffles cover 32" across the waistband. They do flare out a little from there, but the larger the measurement, the less ruffle coverage there will be. It is shown on a 26" waist dressform, on which it fell down to the hips. The belting is cut extra long. It can easily be cut shorter and melted with a flame.
