I'm also nearly done with the travel bustle. I still want to cover the black canvas with something a bit prettier and smoother. I don't want the fabric rubbing against whatever I wear underneath and possible dislodging critical garments. Also, if I were to shrink dramatically, or want a fuller bustle, I can take a tuck in the canvas back and it will be fuller and narrower. Here are a couple blurry pictures of the basic framework and the mostly decorated detail.
