I am thinking about doing this. I have wide tie wraps but I am going to go for the metal. Nice of the head up on the ruffle bits.

Wow! Neat looking undergarment. You might try looking at an electrical supply place. Zip ties are used for bundling computer network wires when putting in a LAN(local area network). I love how computers and old clothing styles intesect. I've bought muslin in 36" width.

Interesting garment... thanks for reviewing. I do enjoy all the vintage and the historic reviews here on PR. I recall when cottons were routinely sewn from 35/36" fabric... the wide stuff was (only) 44 - 45" back in my earliest sewing days. Thinking about that era and before makes me really appreciative of the wide fabrics available today. If I ever need a bustle I will be prepared.. Thanks!
