detail on a circa 1879 dress

1870s - rings (bone?) on inside of skirt for bustling. *For modern making, plastic rings found in drapery departments could be used*

  • Val LaBore

    That's how the ladies in my group described it, and was a suggestion of how they could do it. No idea what they really were.

  • Eva Dress

    Oh! Haha. I've seen the bone crochet rings and thought those might have been a possibility back in the day.

  • Val LaBore

    Yes, bone! That's it. I edited my description.

  • Eva Dress

    Nice 'chatting' with you here today Val!

1870s silk bustle dress is a success due to its reliance on Japonisme in the form of a kimono jacket and underskirt. It is of interest that an actual kimono was incorporated to fashion the dress, rather than the more anticipated use of a kimono as fashionable "at-home" wear. Reproduction underskirt finishes the brightly elegant garment. Monet, Renoir & other Impressionist artists frequently painted their models in kimonos... Kyoto Costume Institute
