Civil War Reenacting: How-To Wear Victorian Period Dresses
Civil War, The Dress, 1860S
These ladies' dresses are nicely presented, but for one major part-- the hoopskirt. The hoopskirt is essential in getting the correct 1860's look. The desired look is the rounded shape of a bell. Unfortunately two of this ladies have more of a "lampshade" shape rather than the bell shape. You can also see the boning of the hoops as one of the ladies' dress lays on them. The easiest way to fix these two period incorrect problems is to wear one or two over skirt petticoats between the hoopskirt and the dress. It smooths out the boning lines and ads more body to create the bell shape.
