Category: Most Beautiful Bustle Dress in the World
Best Other Freestyle Bustle Dress
Seamstress: Manon Antoinette

"The gown is made with embroidered Italian silk, in a non-repeated pattern, single colour Italian silk and hand dyed green silk to match the embroidery. Cotton lining, glazed cotton mostly, except for a twill cotton to make the dust ruffle with. The buttons were made by hand covering them with silk. The bodice has a waist tape. The dust ruffle has a double edge of gathered lace in a cream colour matching the silk colour perfectly in real life, but not in the photographs. The bodice was made using The McDowell Garment Drafting Machine from 1889, and several test fittings. Original costume design sketch for the dress is included. The design was composed by looking through several catalogs of fashion from the same time period, 1887..." Manon Antoinette

"This gown is one of my original designs and patterns. Made from gold silk and just 3.5 meters of ivory and gold net lace fabric, the skirt and bodice front panels are overlaid and hand beaded. I cut flowers from the lace, layered and beaded them at the neckline and the pleating was also cut from the same piece..." Sally C

Seamstress: Sally Clark at: sallycdesigns.com or as Ebay's victoriandressmaker
Model: AC

"This is an 1880's style ensemble that is suitable for day, afternoon tea, dinner, theater, or Gothic/ Steampunk events. It is made in a rich, black satin and paisley print, trimmed with cording and black lace. The fully lined bodice has a high neckline trimmed in black lace with center applique, and finished with black faceted glass beads. The pleated sleeves are 3/4 length and have hand finished paisley appliques down each side. The back of the skirt has an attached paisley overskirt that is split, as well as gathers of black satin and hand finished paisley appliques down each side. I have enjoyed wearing this lovely gown to local events such as tea socials at historical Victorian Queen Anne homes. It is currently displayed on a dress form in my Victorian bedroom full off antiques, beaded lamps, boots, hats, gloves, and lots of lace..." AC
