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 TV170 Victorian Petticoat, you have the perfect foundation for you bustle dresses. 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!!)

    No other bustle pattern can offer this amount of comfort and style. Just put it on and forget it.  Petticoat will also fold flat for ease of storage.

    The Elliptical cage crinoline was the main support foundation for the later- and post-Civil War period of 1863-1868. 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 Elliptical shape is narrow over the hips, close to the body in front, and dramatically expanded to the rear; the most popular shape for 1865-1866 skirts.

    Our crinoline is 126" in circumference at the hem, 36" in length to hem level, and has 12 hoop wires to support the weight of heavy skirts. The self-supporting, elliptical shape is maintained by strategically placed vertical supports, as well as ties on the inside of the 4 top hoops. A "bag" at the hem keeps the wearer from stepping through the hoops.

    This pattern if for an assortment of chemisettes and cuffs, suitable for the 1860's. The chemisettes are perfect for filling in a low cut diner bodice, making it more suitable for day wear.  You can also add interest to a more conservative neckline, with just the collar showing. The cuffs can fill out wide sleeves, or give a nice finish to a narrow sleeve.

    There are three full chemisette styles: Plain Front, Tucked Front, and Gathered Front. Both the Plain and Tucked Fronts have a center front button closure. The Gathered Front is buttoned closed at the collar and waist only. All the versions have a waistband that holds the chemisette in place at the waistline. There are 3 styles of Collar to add to the chemisette: a Shaped Stand, Pointed
    Fall, and Large Fall. Both the Pointed and Large Fall collars also have a small stand. All of the collar varieties are interchangeable with any of the chemisette styles.

    There are two styles of undersleeve with a choice of three cuffs. The first is a full gathered under-sleeve, which gathers into a fitted upper sleeve section, and gathers at the cuff. The second is a
    semi- fitted under-sleeve style, with moderate gathers at the wrist, and easing to fit the upper sleeve section. There are three interchangeable cuff styles: a rounded Shaped Cuff, a moderately Tall Cuff, and a narrow Band Cuff.

    In a search for a bigger, better bustle we have come up with the Imperial Tournure. Tournure is the French term for bustle. Based on the lobster tail design, it has 7 wires in total. The upper wires are set in at an angle in a fan shape, which give a round outline to your bustle and plenty of strength to support your heaviest skirts. Ending a little above the knee, this bustle folds up easily to make sitting in any chair effortless. This bustle has side panels that wrap around the body to the front, which holds the bustle perfectly in place, and keeps it from shifting.

    This bustle comes in two sizes of prominence, Imperial and Regular. The Regular size is similar to the TV101/TV108 bustles. The Imperial size is quite a bit larger, and is perfect for 1887-88 impressions. The Imperial bustle may require length adjustments to our existing skirt patterns, which are discussed in the instructions.

    In the photos:  The Black bustle is Regular size, and the green stripe bustle is Imperial size.
