Victorian style bustle pillow in a comfortable cotton. Add volume to your bustles without bulk with this fun pillow.
This is a wonderful addition to your wardrobe and a must have if you reenact the victorian bustle time period.
Ideal for wearing with dresses and gowns from 1870's to 1887.
Bustle pillow ties around your waist and creates the padding needed to hold your bustle gowns out without using a full boned bustle. Sometimes you don't want the added weight or inconvenience of a fully boned bustle which can be cumbersome and difficult to sit it. This pad can handle upholstery weight fabrics without a problem and hold your skirts out nicely.
Bustle pillow can also be worn on top of a formal bustle to help smooth out the "fall" of the skirt over the bustle. It helps smooth out any boning that might show on a formal bustle if worn this way.
This pillow ties around your waist and sits at the hips giving you the silhoutte you need for your bustle dresses but gives more freedom of movement.
Made from 100% cotton muslin in white or natural
It has 2 rows of gathered lace
The design of this pillow is my own. Both pieces are not the same size or shape. Top and bottom are gathered into each other thus producing a fuller pillow and one that sits nicely on the hips.
Ties around the waist with 2 yards of grosgrain ribbon 1" in width
Measurements of pillow are:
Width- 16" including lace
Length- 10" including lace
This item usually ships out 2-3 days after ordering. I will need to know what color muslin you would like so please note that when you check out in the order process.
I can make this pillow in black or any other cotton color if you are trying to match something or just prefer another color. Colors are made from cotton broadcloth and not muslin but can be made in any color you like. Lace colors only come in white, ivory and black so please keep this in mind if you are ordering another color besion.
I have a couple of pictures of skirts worn with the bustle pillow to give you an idea of its use. Sale will be for the pillow only.
