Farthingale attempt

This my first attempt at making a farthingale using Margo Anderson's pattern and as I have been unable to locate steel boning in Sydney, I decided to try rope as recommended by a number of costumers. I particularly liked Faye's method of spiralling the rope up the farthingale but when I tried to spiral my rope I couldn't get it to work, so used the runnel method as suggested by Janet Arnold but sadly the rope can't support my farthingale's circumference.Farthingale front Farthingale backFarthingale, side view

I will replace the rope with irrigation tubing. The bum roll worked well though Bum roll front Bum roll back
