1856 Walking cage Crinoline KitTV142
The walking cage crinoline is a mid-sized support foundation for the period of 1856-1866. Called a "cage" because of the cage-like appearance created by the hoop wires and vertical support tapes, this type of crinoline offers maximum support capabilities for a perfect shape, combined with flexibility for comfortable wear.
Our crinoline is 110" in circumference at the hem, 33" in length to hem level, and has 8 hoop wires to support the weight of heavy skirts. A "bag" at the hem keeps the wearer from stepping through the hoops.

12m White 21mm Wide Bone casing
