Styling the bustle
Gathering up a dress with magnetsI sew historic bustle dresses and I was looking for a solution to gather up the top coat, where it is not necessary to attach it to the petticoat. The reason: I want to be able to wear the pretty petticoat alone also. Then I had the idea of placing sew-in magnets from supermagnete.fr on the inside of the top coat. I decided to sew eight little pockets, in which I can place the magnets, and then attached them to the coat.
- Alternative 1: Of course, you can directly sew the magnets onto the fabric (without pocket). In this case, one magnet is sufficient.
- Alternative 2: Sew the pockets shut on three sides, then place the magnet inside and sew the last side shut. This way, the danger of the magnet adhering to the sewing machine in lower.
