18th-Century-style pocket-hoop side panniers for supporting the full-skirted ballgowns of the period. I created these panniers to wear under this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/93582753/flock-and-foil-rococo-skirt but they can be used on their own or for supporting other similarly-constructed skirts.

The panniers are made of unbleached cotton muslin curtains, thick hanger wire, string, plastic boning, and even some used flexible diffuser reed along the insides of the pockets (which still smell a little like Escents' "Oasis" - if you're sensitive to fragrances, you might want to avoid this item.) The waistband is slightly adjustable and buttons up at the front.

Condition:
The construction of this piece is very rough, as I originally made it for use as an unseen support. This is an as-is costume-quality piece.

Measurements:
width: 27"/68.5cm side-to-side
depth: 12"/30.5cm front-to-back
height: panniers are 15"/38cm high
waist: adjustable from 30"/76cm to 31"/79cm (two button holes)

Wear:
To be worn underneath a full skirt, Can also be worn exposed as an interesting avant-garde costume component. Sides collapse upwards when the wearer sits down.

Shipping:
This item will be shipped neatly curled in half to cut down on box size and shipping costs - simply unbend when you receive it. Please contact me for a shipping quote to destinations outside of Canada and the United States - I will happily calculate the cost of shipping to your country!
