Curator Notes

Fair condition. Pocket beginning to separate from petticoat, cotton fabric torn near waistband. Metal bustle boning has flattened, top boning band is broken and missing a piece, and boning casements have torn at edges where they meet the skirt. The back closures show evidence of being removed and re-sewn.
