Petticoat 1859

The Isabella Skirt, made by Douglas & Sherwood, New York, is peculiarly adapted to the present season, combining as it does all the advantages of a hoop and quilted skirt. The bottom is bordered to the depth of half a yard or more with white quilting, edged with a heavy cord. Three light flexible steel hoops are introduced in the upper portion of the skirt. The back forms an adjustable bustle, while the front is composed of a series of upright bands of white tape, placed at equal distances, and extending from the band to the quilting.

from Peterson's February, 1859 page 159
