  • Contemporary Northern Traditional Bustle construction

    I have made four bustles since 1990. Each one better than the last and each one incorporating ideas from other bustle maker's finished products. I have used several ideas and procedures from Craig Jone's article listed below. The primary ingredient missing from the article is 'patience.' Make your bustle as though its going to be your best and last bustle. Take your time. Protect your supplies and finished bustle from extreme heat and cold.

    Craig Jones, writer for Whispering Winds has published an excellent guide for construction of a contemporary Northern Traditional Bustle.

    The link for the article is provided below:
