I wrote a novel set in 1877 in southern California about two reformed outlaws, so I have a fondness for this era. Women's fashions changed from round skirts with piles of furbelows to a slim and trailing look. Thus, my dance hall girl criticizes a lady for looking "lean like a snake." A new rail-line from Los Angeles to San Francisco makes rescuing one of my heros from the law more difficult. It was an era of change with so much going on.

Mistress of Disguise: Western Fashion in Japan in the Bustle Era

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
