This petticoat bustle is based on an actual garment as seen in Harper’s Bazaar magazine. This pattern will create a moderate sized bustle, proportioned to your hip size (one size does not fit all). It can be used as support for either 1870’s or 1880’s style of bustle dress. When combined with the flounce overlay, no other petticoat is needed. 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 wearability (you can sit down without making any adjustments to the bustle!!) This petticoat will also fold flat for ease of storage.
Notions: 7 m metal boning and 20 metal caps, available from our “Corsetry” department.
All sizes included: S-XXL (Hip 75 – 140 cm)
