This skirt is an original design based on elements and ideas in use during the 1850’s and 1860’s. The top skirt is pulled up in swags, revealing a box pleated ruffle underneath. Double box pleats at the waist complete the look. If desired, contrasting fabrics may be used, or a single tone is very elegant. Garnish the swags with flowers or bows.
This is a very elegant skirt, that is also easy to make. Made out of cotton calico, this pattern is a nice “country” ball gown and picnic dress. Richer materials and elaborate trims make this a skirt fit for a high society evening.
Fits for crinolines with a circumferrence of 3m, 3.40m or 3.75m.
One size fits all – the waist can be pleated to fit any given measurement.
