TV141 - 1858 Round Cage Crinoline

Score: 4.50 (votes: 4)

The Round cage crinoline was the main support foundation for the period of 1855-1862. Called a "cage" because of the cage-like appearance created by the hoop wires and vertical support tapes, this type of crinoline offers maximum support capabilities for a perfect shape, combined with flexibility for comfortable wear.

Our crinoline is 126" in circumference at the hem, 36" in length to hem level, and has 10 hoop wires to support the weight of heavy skirts. A "bag" at the hem keeps the wearer from stepping through the hoops.

This pattern in now also available as an E-Pattern.  Go to E-Pattern listing.

    Easy to follow instructions but very time consuming sewing the boning channels in the grosgrain ribbon. I tested using a heat sealer (like for plastic bags) and it works very quickly to make the boning channels. None of my local fabric stores have 3/4" belting so I had to special order some. In the future, I'll make the belting casing to accommodate 1" belting.

    Now on to the 1860 Working Dress! Thank you for such nice patterns.

    I just finished making my TV 141 and I love it, I am so proud of it and myself for making it; I can not wait to finish my projects and see how the dresses will look on top of this hoop skirt! The pattern was very easy to understand even though there are a few spots that are hard to get to once you get some of the hoops in place but its still an awesome hoop skirt either way!

    A Great well written and easy to follow pattern. This will be a little too big for shorter stature ladies, like myself (I'm 5'2"). I recommend TV142 1856 Walking Cage, which is shorter, and similar in shape.
