Bustle dress

made of heavy silk brocade
 
 

Period: around 1873

This dress was designed after an original cut from the early bustle period for an exhibition at castle Letzlingen.

It was crafted from heavy silk brocade interwoven with gold threads and delicate silk organza. Through this precious material combined with numerous pleats and gatherings we were able to express the opulence of this epoch, while simultaneously avoiding its occasionally florid style through a tone on tone design. Similarly the silk flowering repeats the brocade's primary color.

Schirm


The skirt itself consists of an over- and an underskirt made of silk brocade; the former is hitched up by straps on the inside. Underneath is a cotton underskirt followed by a bustle.


The bodice is narrow-cut and boned on the inside. A corset is indispensable for the tight lacing required for the necessary slender waist. The dress is closed with hand-covered buttons. Sleeves and décolletage are adorned with antique tulle lace.
