This Victorian skirt can be gently trained, or bustled up with ties inside the skirt, as you prefer. An elastic waist ensures comfort. Several rows of ruffled lace and black gimp embellish the hemline. What graceful styling! Proudly designed and made in America by Recollections. Acetate taffeta or Polyester dupioni. Please dry clean. There is a crinoline under the skirt and it is priced separately. So lovely!
