RH 966 Victorian 1850s Cage Crinoline

Size : EUR 19.00 incl. VAT

(EUR 15.97 excl. VAT)


When skirts widened to ridiculous widths in the 1850s, something more than a bunch of petticoats was required to hold them in their proper circular shape.

Enter the Cage Crinoline!

Our pattern includes three interpretations of the crinoline: the light and skeletal hoops and tapes, the boned cloth petticoat, and a hybrid of the two with hoops and tapes above and a wide hem of boned fabric at the bottom.

Fits all waist sizes

Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.

Notions: hoop boning, thread;
buttons, or hooks and eyes for front for closure;
twill tape

Yardage Requirements:
30 yards hoop steel boning
30 yards twill tape -or- 6 yards at least 40"/1m cotton for petticoat body
