Another fantastic value pattern from Laughing Moon with no less than FIVE hoop and bustle patterns! Inside the envelope are 5 period correct hoop and bustle patterns with clear illustrations and simple directions. These hoops can be used for a whole range of outfits including historical re-enactment, cosplay, burlesque, steampunk and ofcourse bridal.
View A is a bell shape, meant to mimic the shape of multiple petticoats. This is the shape of medium hoops from their invention in 1856 until the "elliptic" shape of View B became popular, about 1863. View C, the bustle, rear hoop, and flat front were worn in the heyday of trains and bustles from 1869 to 1876. This bustle/hoop can also be worn under any gown with a train from 1883 to 1889. View D and E were popular during the bustle revival years of 1883 to 1889. A bustle pad is also included which was worn during the period when all other cages had been discarded. All hoops and bustles are copies of extant period garments.
All sizes from 4-36 are in the envelope. Contains easy instructions and clear illustrations on how to make the bustles and hoops. Complete information on how to work with hoop steel, along with pattern notes, and bibliography are included. All these Victorian foundations in one envelope!!!
