Deep blue modern bustle skirt

by brae  


shoes: Naturalizer 'Camilla'

The fabric is blue woven poly suiting from Joann Fabrics.  I bought a half-yard remnant of this at a local store and loved the color so much that I called customer service to find out if there was any more of it at another store.  I found it in another state.  Both the woman working at the out of state store and the woman working at my local store were so helpful; they set up a store transfer order and I got more of this beautiful fabric.  :D

The ruffle is lined with dark blue crepe back satin.  It can peek out a bit while wearing the skirt, so I wanted it to be pretty.  :]

The pattern is Vogue 8317.  I've made the skirt three times now but haven't attempted the jacket.  The pattern envelope shows a fancy satin and lace suit with rhinestone details, which I am sure would be lovely for evening wear, but I love the modern bustle skirt interpretation the back ruffle creates when using suiting fabric.  Very feminine silhouette!
