1875 Parisian Trained Skirt- Victorian Early Bustle Era Skirt

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Description from Truly Victorian's website:  You will need to purchase a bustle pattern to wear underneath to get the silhouette pictured.


This skirt is drafted based on an actual garment as seen in a photograph taken in 1875, in Paris. The skirt base is the traditional 5 front gores and full back. The front has two swags, one high and one low on the skirt. The sides are trimmed with vertical ruches simulating a separate panel. The back can be made either bouffant or flat, with a very full train added. The closure is in the left side back seam. An optional pocket is in the right side seam.

The original dress was of a plaid silk, but anything will look nice. Best when worn with bustle TV101 or TV108. An extra trained petticoat may help to hold the dress to a better shape. This skirt is suitable for evening parties or weddings, or other fancy occasions.
