TV241 - 1854 Flounced Skirt


Not rated yet

Flounced skirts were the height of fashion throughout the 1850's. The number of flounces on a skirt varied, as did the size of the flounces. The Four flounce skirt was a favorite from 1854-56, but examples are seen as early as 1853 and as late as 1858. Also popular was a Three Flounced skirt, which is the same shape as the Four, but the top flounce is omitted. This version is seen as early as 1843, and as late as 1859.

Used for both day dresses and ball gowns, the flounced skirt is universal throughout the period. Examples of fabrics used range from heavy plush, wool, and silk, to sheer fabrics and prints.

This pattern fits best over TV142 - 1856 Walking Cage Crinoline. But we also have given instructions for adapting this pattern to fit over TV141- 1858 Round Cage Crinoline. The closure is in the center back, and the skirt is gauged onto the waistband. The flounces are gathered onto a cord. Shown at right as a petticoat over TV142.
