Women's vintage clothing during the Victorian era featured wide, full skirts and crinolines (stiffened petticoats). As early as the 1830s, to support more fullness, hoops made out of material such as cane were sewn around the hems of the petticoats. Vintage clothing In 1858 included steel hoops attached to vertical tapes hanging from the waist forming a cage. This called for fewer petticoats to be worn and the cage crinoline became very popular.

Myth or McKettrick?    The astounding thing is - how does McKettrick do it? Like this spun sugar plaid with the billowing skirt and row of big sparklers.
