The cuffs can fill out wide sleeves, or give a nice finish to a narrow sleeve.

There are three full chemisette styles: Plain Front, Tucked Front, and Gathered Front. Both the Plain and Tucked Fronts have a center front button closure. The Gathered Front is buttoned closed at the collar and waist only. All the versions have a waistband that holds the chemisette in place at the waistline. There are 3 styles of Collar to add to the chemisette: a Shaped Stand, Pointed
Fall, and Large Fall. Both the Pointed and Large Fall collars also have a small stand. All of the collar varieties are interchangeable with any of the chemisette styles.

There are two styles of undersleeve with a choice of three cuffs. The first is a full gathered under-sleeve, which gathers into a fitted upper sleeve section, and gathers at the cuff. The second is a
semi- fitted under-sleeve style, with moderate gathers at the wrist, and easing to fit the upper sleeve section. There are three interchangeable cuff styles: a rounded Shaped Cuff, a moderately Tall Cuff, and a narrow Band Cuff.

1887 Imperial Tournure

  A B C D E F G H I J K L M N
Waist 20" 22" 24" 26" 28" 30" 32" 34" 36" 38" 40" 42" 44" 46"
Hip 30" 32" 34" 36" 38" 40" 42" 44" 46" 48" 50" 52" 54" 56"

In a search for a bigger, better bustle we have come up with the Imperial Tournure. Tournure is the French term for bustle. Based on the lobster tail design, it has 7 wires in total. The upper wires are set in at an angle in a fan shape, which give a round outline to your bustle and plenty of strength to support your heaviest skirts. Ending a little above the knee, this bustle folds up easily to make sitting in any chair effortless. This bustle has side panels that wrap around the body to the front, which holds the bustle perfectly in place, and keeps it from shifting.

This bustle comes in two sizes of prominence, Imperial and Regular. The Regular size is similar to the TV101/TV108 bustles. The Imperial size is quite a bit larger, and is perfect for 1887-88 impressions. The Imperial bustle may require length adjustments to our existing skirt
