This Waterfall Bustle is designed specifically to attach to Thimbles and Acorns Victorian Era Bustle Dresses, but is versatile enough to use with just about any dress - or even pants - to add a little Victorian or Steampunk panache. It can be sewn directly to a dress or bodice or attached with snaps or on a waistband as a separate piece.
This pattern is the first in our new "Design-ables" series, which consist of component pieces for existing patterns that will expand individual design possibilities.
This PDF sewing pattern is sized to fit American Girl®, A Girl for All Time®, and other similarly sized dolls
