The Original Series
For "The Original Series," I made a bustle that exists separately from the other pieces. The bustle itself is made from turquoise shantung sateen from Fabric.com. I used black twill and sew-in interfacing to make the belt, with Velcro as a closure. There are three lengths of ribbon on the underside, that are between the Velcro and belt, with eyes that correspond to hooks sewn into the bustle. I also hand embroidered the sciences insignia in the lower right corner. I wanted a little something to clearly state TOS on it.
