This dress is one that I have wanted to make for quite some time but just haven't gotten to it for no reason. It is an under-bust which I really do love. I don't have an under-bust dresses but I want a dozen. There are a few here and there in Lolita but they aren't very popular. Off the top of my head I can only think of 2 or 3 dresses that are an under-bust.
The skirt portion of this JSK is going to be 2 layers. The bottom layer will just be the under skirt with a double ruffle along the hem. The top layer will be a shorter version of the bottom but it will also have bustle/cinching at the seams. You can pull up just one like in the above picture or any number of them. There will be 6. You can bustle up the back, front , all of them, or even the sides if you are feeling a little spicy.
Since the top is pretty simple and the skirt is just ruffles I thought it would be nice to have a fancy removable bow to add where ever you wanted.
