So back when I first started thinking about this steampunk thing, I remember considering the idea of bustles. I saw the various ways to make a bustle from wire.

A “How To Draft and Make 1930′s Style Circular French Knickers” post. « SewVeraVenus Just what it says on the tin: how to draft and make knickers like these. A few weeks ago while digging in a scrap bag for a bit of fabric to trial a 1940′s bra pattern I’ve been working on (more on that later) I unearthed a very fragile and disintegrating pair of 1930′s black chiffon French Knickers ….
