Ladies' Pocket Panniers

Also called side hoops, were worn beneath the lady's gown and petticoat to give a wide, billowing effect to 18th century formal and semi-formal clothing.
Panniers are set on an adustable waist-tie, and may be permanantly sewn or pinned after adjustment by the wearer. We recommend that the knot be offset either to right or left so that no unsightly "bulge" will show in the center front when the dress is put on.
(Note: Pannier hooping is not washable. To remove it for washing, carefully take out the stitching at the ends of the hoop casing and pull out the hooping.)
Price: $60.00
