Thanks for this article!
I was planning to make my own bustle for my competition entry for the 2012-2013 Steampunk theme and had an idea in my head to just make one as I saw fit, and I'm glad to see that my ideas are perfectly historically accurate too - use of scrap/cheap fabric, padded out with whatever stuffing I can find, and a rough shape idea being more than adequate!
I'm looking forward to giving this a go now!
