TV142E - 1856 Walking Cage Crinoline E-Pattern

Not rated yet

This is a downloadable pattern that you can print at home, on your standard printer with Letter/A4 size paper or at a professional printer, like Kinkos.

The walking cage crinoline is a mid-sized support foundation for the period of 1856-1866. 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. This cage is in a domed shape, perfect for the years 1856 - 1860. We have added a cincher style belt for ease of wear.

Our crinoline is 110" in circumference at the hem, 33" in length to hem level, and has 8 hoop wires to support the weight of heavy skirts. A "bag" at the hem keeps the wearer from stepping through the hoops.
