Product Description

Revere styles skirt are shown in fashion plates from 1861 to 1864. The overskirt can be short, as in view A, or reaching to the hem, and any length in between. But in each case, the overskirt is in panels, with the bottom corners flipped back to reveal a contrasting lining, and the skirt underneath. View A, with the 3 ruffles at the hem, is more suited for evening dresses, while View B with a single flounce is suited for both day and evening styles. For an evening dress, the top skirt could be made of a sheer fabric or net, showing the entire underskirt through the fabric. For winter, velvets, silks, or fine wools look nice. Or use silk or cotton prints, with solid-colored reveres and ruffle for a light and airy summer dress. This pattern fits over both the 1856 Walking Cage Crinoline (TV142), and the 1858 Round Cage Crinoline (TV141). The closure is in the center back, and the skirts are pleated to the waistband. The flounces are gathered over a cord and sewn to the base skirt.
