In the 1860s, the full bell of the crinoline began to shift behind the wearer. A new crinoline shape was needed.

Behold the Elliptical Cage Crinoline!

Our pattern includes three interpretations of the elliptical 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
