Festival tatter bustle from the ‘Rag Queen’ range inspired by Goth shades of lilac and purple blended with dramatic black. This fluid and flattering bustle over skirt is great for Steampunk, burlesque or tribal fusion belly dance costume. Repurposed and new fabrics are imaginatively shaped into cascading layers topped with an embroidered upcycled panel and vintage beads. Designed to enhance movement and creates interest and flattering lines you can layer this over skirts, tribal pants, leggings or bloomers … even wear it as an unusual capelet !
Fabrics are plain and print, matt and sparkly in varied textures stitched to a black cotton base, and the bustle belt has long ties of stretch fabric for a secure and comfortable fit. For durability many edges are finished, some with lettuce hem, with some unfinished edges being part of the design, adding changing character to the garment.

Approximate measurements: Top of bustle 32″ / 82 cm, plus ties each side 50″ / 130 cm. Length 8″ / 20 cm at front sloping to 17″ / 43 cm at back.
I use many vintage, repurposed and rediscovered materials, mainly obtained through fair trade, charitable and eco sources. Rescuing and re-using fragments that others would discard creates individuality seldom achieved with mass-produced trimmings. Each design is crafted by my own hands in a smoke-and-pet-free studio overlooking the Yorkshire hills.
There’s a little story woven into every one.
