This listing is for a Late Renaissance wheel farthingale. It is made out of sturdy unbleached cotton twill fabric and boned with 3 rows of steel hoop boning. It ties together in back at the waist as well as at the juncture of each the bones.
Wheel farthingales were worn at the end of the Renaissance and throughout much of the Jacobean Period. With a bum roll underneath to keep it stable, the wheel gives skirts a cylindrical shape. The bodice was typically V-shaped and laid down over the front of the wheel, making the torso appear very long and thin. Though this style was pioneered by the French, Queen Elizabeth I made it popular throughout Europe.
Measurements of wheel:
Waist to Front edge/back edge: 7 1/4"
Waist to Side edge: 10"
Care Instructions: dry clean
