Birthday Bustle - Progress!

First new undergarment finished!
I'm not entirely sure what the undergarments for the film gown looked like.
 This gorgeous book, Coppola and Eiko on Bram Stoker's Dracula, published in 1992, has one photo of a bustle. But there is no indication of which dresses it was paired with.
The bustle has exposed boning at the top and a cascade of ruffles to the floor.
Rather than re-invent the wheel, I decided to use Truly Victorian's Petticoat with Wire Bustle, as a pattern with additional ruffles.
And here's my version.
Next up: corset!
