Reconstructing History #RH966 - 1850s Circular Cage Crinoline

Get your big belle hoop here!

When skirts widened to ridiculous widths in the 1850s, something more than a bunch of petticoats was required to hold them in their proper circular shape. 

Enter the Cage Crinoline!

Our pattern includes three interpretations of the crinoline: the light and skeletal hoops and tapes, the boned cloth petticoat, and a hybrid of the two with hoops and tapes above and a wide hem of boned fabric at the bottom.

Fits all waist sizes

Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.

Suggested Fabrics: cotton

Notions: hoop boning, thread; buttons, or hooks and eyes for front for closure; twill tape

Yardage Requirements:
30 yards hoop steel boning
30 yards twill tape or 6 yards at least 40"/1m cotton for petticoat body
optional:  2 yards fabric for hem
