Looking for an accessory to add to your mermaid ensemble? Then this OOAK bustle is for you!
It fits a size XS/S (34″ waist) and is held in place as a belt with a button on one side and two snap closures on the other.
I hand-sewed the bustle, which is a collage of various fabrics (some I wet felted and nunofelted myself). Then I hand-sewed the belt to the bustle itself and crocheted a wooly sea-star as the centerpiece with dangly bits hanging down for swishing and swaying purposes.
Colors range from army and loden green to forest and leaf green with splashes of blues and sea greens mixed in for mermaid purposes. The piece consists primarily of rayon and polyester fabrics and lace, some cotton and silk, dark green mohair, wet-felted corriedale wool, crocheted merino yarn, and an olive green corduroy belt.
The bustle can be worn over leggings, skirts, pants, and can be blended with various costume pieces from Steampunk to Fantasy, but don’t limit yourself, mermaids.
It’s simply awesome.
NOTE: the halter top, cardigan, and underskirt are sold separately (and are equally wonderful).
