    I have another question concerning bustle styles. Is there a difference between northern traditional, and swing style bustles? Is there somewhere where I can get a good look at some swing style bustles anywhere on the net?

    Crazy Crow has got a good book. Northern Traditional Dancer, by Scott Evans. It has alot of good bustle shots. I think it is about $15 or so. But it is a good place to start.
    There is a first and second printing of the book, and they have some different shots in each.

      If any of you men could share some knowledge as to how to make this bustle I would be ever so grateful. I have never really looked that closely; I only have experience with women regalia.
