This steampunk skirt is a variation of our ever popular Parlour Bustle Skirt, called the Grand Bustle, which is ideal as part of a Victorian costume or gothic outfit. It can be worn over an underskirt as shown for a really dramatic effect. Or it can be worn on it's own for a more daring steampunk outfit!

The front features elegant apron drapery, pleated at the side of the hips, while hand-caught gathers at the back creates the gorgeous waterfall effect. There is enough excess in the fabric to wear a bustle pad if you desire for that extra historical detail. Beautiful venice lace flows down the side and around the hem at the back. There are two buttons on the waistband to give you a couple of inches flexibility.

The skirt is made from high quality, polyester taffeta which is elegant, crisp and silk- like. It can be made in a huge variety of  colours from purples and pinks to silvers and blues. Polyester taffeta is easy to care for and can be machine washed.
Perfect for steampunk, neo-victorian or goth, you'll be sure to look resplendant at your next event.

Choice of fabric colour.
Modern overlocked/serged seams.
Black OR ivory lace (may vary from what is shown)
Machine washable at 30C.

To order just choose your fabric and lace colour option from the drop down menus then please put your waist measurement in the notes box. You can also add your waist to floor if you are tall or short. The average length of the back drape is approx. 110cm. and ideally just skims the floor at the longer points, but I can tweak this if needed.

As a custom piece this item is professionally handmade at my Lincolnshire, UK studio. I select appropriate toning colours of silk and velvet to best match your chosen options.  Please see the delivery section for details of my current schedule, but it is usually around 8 weeks plus shipping time.

This listing is for the bustle over skirt only. The waistcoat and underskirt are available separately in the shop. It is recommended that you order matching pieces together to ensure colour batches and trims are the same.

    "The bustle was excellent, as was the skirt I previously ordered from this seller around a year ago. I’m very satisfied with the expert craftsmanship and the amount of volume it’s got." - Katerina
