Petticoat Wire Bustle

 
Petticoat with wire bustle 1870-1880's
 
In this project I used a Truly Victorian historical pattern which is based on an actual garment seen in Harper's Bazaar magazine.  This petticoat has a center front closure, and four hoop bones built into the back.  I used light cotton material and a drawstring for the structural support that can also be flatten for storage.
