The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

I'd like to make a dress like this one: http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/taken-by-storm-flap-dress

I think Butterick's 5598 is a good place to start for the top (http://butterick.mccall.com/b5598-products-13740.php?page_id=155), but was wondering if anyone had a god suggestion for a bustle-style skirt?

Thanks!

Hopefully this will help: http://jasperdragon.tumblr.com/post/16372711097/bustle-skirt. Not sure yet how good I am at explaining things, but hopefully it'll be clear and easy to follow.

I've made a few skirts like this, it's actually a really easy modification once you've got the main skirt finished. Good luck, I'd love to see the finished look!

Jessica, thank you for your thoughtful post.

Aubrey, I totally spaced on that pattern and then also remembered it at work today.  I think that is probably the best way to go...
