New Ruffle Bustle Skirt Pattern in the Shop!

Posted on

Well, so far I have not met my New Year’s Resolution goal of one new pattern a month. But I did at least meet the goal of having this pattern ready before Halloween!

The newest WhatTheCraft Pattern is the Ruffle Bustle Skirt!
This voluminous tie-on bustle skirt is the perfect accessory for any steampunk, burlesque, or Halloween costume-  complete your look with a corset and a pair of bloomers or leggings!
The skirt has an open front with three lace trimmed, ruffled layers that cascade around your hips, emphasizing your feminine curves. The satin ribbon ties at the waist allow for flexible sizing.

The sample I made is Queen of Hearts inspired, now I’m thinking versions for Alice, the Cheshire Cat, and the Mad Hatter are in order! These bustle skirts would be so awesome for a group costume theme.

New Vintage Style Apron Pattern, plus a freebie!

Posted on

I am happy to share the newest WhatTheCraft Pattern has arrived in the shop! It’s a vintage style apron with lots of retro flair- a flouncy twirly circle skirt, sweetheart bust, ruffled hem, and adjustable neck and waist ties!

And to compliment the apron, I’ve also released a free pattern for a collection of vintage style pockets! Of course they make a perfect addition to the apron, but you can also use them on bags, clothing, etc. And did I mention they’re free?
