Striped Bustle, Shrug, Hat and Cuffs Set - One of a Kind
Beautiful striped fabric in tones of sand, rust, and pale gold is teamed with softest beige/gold taffeta and black lace to make a gorgeous layered tie-on bustle. The fabric has been gathered and ruched for maximum bustley-ness! It has corset style lacing at the back waist and a lace bow, and a long rich sepia ribbon to tie this bustle on means this will fit from a size 10 through to a size 18/20. This has a matching shrug which also has soft tulle pleated in with the striped fabric and lace to wrap around your shoulders. There are also cuffs trimmed with the same lace and a brass and pearl cameo to trim each. These are elasticised at the wrist and will also look wonderful peaking out of the cuffs of your jacket, (these are pinned on to the shrug in the photo showing the full outfit). Finally, a gorgeous handmade tiny top hat has a pretty brim which curves up to one side, and is trimmed with feathers, lace, braid, and a pearl and brass cameo that matches the ones on the cuffs. Alligator clips underneath mean you can attach to your hair, or clip to your own headband if that is preferred.
Wear these separately with different outfits or all together for a co-ordinated look. This will work over a longer skirt, leggings, or even bloomers for a sassy steampunk or lovely Lolita costume! This is handmade here in New Zealand and is one of a kind!
Dry clean only.
Bustle size - because this ties on, One Size Fits Some. We’ve tried this on Size 10 through to Size 20 - smaller sizes will have the central ribbon pull the sides in closer to the middle waist. This is shown on a small sized mannequin.
The colours in these pieces vary slightly under different lighting and on different screen monitors.
