1880s Butterfly Train (TV361)

1880s Butterfly Train (TV361)



The Butterfly detachable train is a separate garment that attaches to any existing skirt, forming a bow or “butterfly” at the back of the bodice and then falling gracefully to the floor in poufs – very popular in 1883-1887. Just perfect for a wedding gown, or turning a floor length dress into an evening showpiece. The large poufs at the back are created with pleats at the center back, which are then placed over the lower edge of a long waisted bodice and hooked in place on the bodice itself. Additional pleats at the sides help create the butterfly effect. Very authentic, elegant and easy to make.

Sizes (Waist 55 – 100 cm = 22 – 40″) included.
