Brown Toile High Waist Bustle Skirt
Made out of a beautiful brown upholstery fabric featuring frames with a resting Shepard, decorated with vines, birds, and roses throughout.
Bustle back made of a light brown cotton fabric trimmed with ivory lace (NOTE: the brown of the bustles and the light brown in the print itself are NOT a 100% perfect match, but they coordinate together just fine, color is variable in different light sources). The hem is decorated with an ivory cotton beading lace, and the waist accented with lines of scalloped lace that matches the ones that trim the bustles. The skirt is fully lined with satin fabric. There is a side seam invisible zipper. 

You can see two previous items I made from this fabric for myself, a commission for someone else, and more about this fabric here on my sewing blog in this post.

Sizing
Waist is fully shirred, front and back, top and bottom, but it is NOT FREE SIZE.
High Waist: 26" - 32"
Natural Waist: 24" - 30"

**The reason why this is because if the shirring stretches too much, the gathers will become distorted. So any sizes bigger than the ones listed, though it may fit, the gathers would be lost. The max measurement is my safe estimated maximum. I cannot guarantee it would look the same if your waist is slightly bigger than these measurements. Please measure yourself before buying. 
Length from waist: 21"
Any additional measurements can be provided upon request for serious buyers.

Washing and Care
ABSOLUTELY DRY CLEAN ONLY!
This skirt is made out of medium-heavy weight upholstery fabric coupled with a lightweight cotton. Many upholstery fabrics cannot be washed in the washing machine, rather I wouldn't risk it. I stress that you have this cleaned at the dry cleaner to avoid shrinkage, pilling, or print running. 
- Can be ironed on medium heat.
- Spot clean when needed with a light amount of water.

Pricing
I'm asking 100USD + shipping 
Price is negotiable, but whomever makes the best offer gets it.

Thank you for looking :)
If you have any questions in relation to the sale, please write "QUESTION" in the subject line of your comment, thank you.
