On to the second one!
I wanted to make a second Victorian skirt, because owning one isn't enough!

I used two old pairs of curtains, and a simple a-line skirt pattern (I can't remember which one, but it was something like simplicity, anything that is basically two pieces sewn together in a a-line). I extended it to make it floor length, and used the top edging of the curtain to create a structured waist. I sewed it up the sides, added a zipper and it was done. Curtains are great for making old fashioned costumes because they are cheap (if you get them from a second hand store or your attic) and they give you the required structure.

I also decided to make a bit of a bustle for this one. I cut out a bit of fabric in the shape of a cape, that I could tie around my waist. I added a bit of boning to create a bustle effect, and nipped in the bottom and sides. This lays over the skirt, so it can be worn with, or without.

I'm wearing this skirt with the Victorian Bodice I made (https://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/victorian-bodice-the-second)
