I sure hope so!
Rest assured, it’s not all me under there (no, really), as this is an example of an 1880’s period bustle dress, in the popular military fashion.
Out of crinolines and bustles, I tend to prefer wearing bustles. They feel comfortable and are easier to manage in most places, rather than a bulky crinoline style of gown.
Once again, I have my very talented mum to thank for this amazing set!
