Truly Victorian TV101 Petticoat with Wire Bustle Pattern
Petticoat With Wire Bustle Pattern
Perfect for 1870s & 1880s full bustle styles!
This petticoat bustle pattern is based on an actual garment as seen in Harper's Bazaar magazine. It will create a moderate sized bustle, proportioned to your hip size (one size does not fit all), and can be used as support for either 1870's or 1880's style of bustle dress. When combined with the TV170 Victorian Petticoat, you have the perfect foundation for you bustle dresses.
This petticoat has a center front closure and four hoop bones built into the back. This design allows for structural support for heavy skirts combined with ease of movement and wear-ability (you can sit down without making any adjustments to the bustle!!)
Petticoat will also fold flat for ease of storage.
