I've figured out a way to produce the pattern on a heavy paper en-mass. The pattern contains 3 sizes. Small, Medium and Large.
The Small fits a waist/hip measurement of 70cm.
The Medium, 80cm.
The Large, 90cm. In this example, the bustle is criss-crossed at the back hence, it is twisted and turned under-- hiding the key hole.
I state a waist/hip measurement because it can be worn anywhere inbetween that area. There is a lot of slack, and not tailored, so it is easy to fit many sizes. If you fall in the middle of the sizing, then mark your button holes in the middle or create the two button holes around your waist measurement and that's about it.
The length of the skirt part is optional.
Add a super long ruffle or a ruffle on a ruffle or a kangaroo pocket! Have fun with it. I've posted a few examples of the Bustle skirt I have in my wardrobe. One for the winter (pink weed) and the other in a lighter fabrics for the summer.
This is an example of one of the many ways you can tie the bustle part. Note: thicker fabric gives fuller gathering.
