Behind the Scenes (is a Cushion)

What really happens when my other half and I take pictures! Here's a cushion strapped to my hiney. The Victorian skirt had a little bustle, but it was too flat to my linking. I didn't have the time to sew anything and was feeling a bit lazy too, so here's a neat trick: grab a plump cushion, some ribbon and two safety pins. Cut two pieces of the ribbon, about 50 cm each, and pin them to two corners of the cushion that are next to each other. Fold the ribbon end and insert the pin on the folded end to avoid fraying. Tie the ribbons around your waist and your emergency bustle is done!


My skirt was a bit too long on me, so I grabbed the tallest heels I owned. They don't show under them hem anyway, so I could have worn anything! It was also important to lift the hems when walking, they were always under my boots ;D

  3. Ha ha, a pillow! What a great idea! Things are often too long on me as I am short!

    1. Thank you! Upon closer inspection it turned out that the top layer of the skirt is a bit too long, but the layer underneath it was just perfect with heels on. So just a little snip of the scissors and I'll hem the top layer again, and it should be perfect. Much nicer to wear something that doesn't end up under your shoes trying to trip you ;D
