What's not fair?
I'll let you in on a secret - the sewing machine came into common use in the mid-Victorian era, around about the time this type of bustle was fashionable. The more complicated sewing techniques using the technology to its full effect - curved seams, bias cuts and the like - had yet to be widely used.
What this means is that many of these garments (not the corsets, they're a bit specialised) are put together using really simple techniques - straight seams and not many of them - and are quite suitable for beginner seamstresses.

Truly Victorian has a likely looking pattern...

I can bead, embroider, silk screen, and otherwise decorate cloth... but for the life of me I cannot sew two pieces of it together.

Ah, I thought you were learning to sew. Perhaps I am thinking of someone else?

My mom was a fantastic seamstress, arthritis has made her stop. She made my steamcoat for me, with help.
I can't sew.

It could be you that I was thinking of. How's that going? Any interest in late 1800's bustle-skirts?
