Hoop skirt update

So, due to the fact that keeping the shape of an 1860s crinoline is very difficult, I have adopted a new approach. The thing is, in order to create that elliptical shape, I would have needed to put wire horizontally, which means that sitting wouldn’t be a possibility! 

So, the plans have changed. It is now going to be an 1850s wire crinoline, due to the fact that the circular shape is so much easier to make. 

  
I am making it out of some fairly sturdy wire I found lying around, and luckily, the cat approves of this project! She loves the tapes dangling down from it! I know that it won’t look beautiful and very neat, but that doesn’t worry me because with skirts over the top, no one will see the crinoline, and it’s there to give shape.
