The Marie Antoinette extra wide panniers will be constructed at 48 inches across the top of the panniers. Length measures 36 to 38 inches from waist to hem length. The hemline measures over
120 inches sweep circumference. These panniers are HUGE.
Ribbons under the panniers hoop cage can be pulled tighter to make the front and back flatter and the sides wider.When the ribbons are not tied, the panniers become rounder ,while maintaining the oblong shaping.The panniers are constructed with 5 lengthy hoops of half inch spring hoop steel in double folded casings that shape the panniers.The front and back centers are flat while both sides extend out. The panniers are made from heavy decorator weight cotton .
The Marie Antoinette Panniers or side hoops are women's undergarments worn during the eighteenth century. Panniers/side hoops extended the width of the skirts at the side while leaving the front and back flat. This provided a flat panel where boldly scaled woven patterns or rich embroidery could be seen very vividly.The style originated in Spain during the 17th century. By mid-eighteenth century it had been developed into the robe à la française, which ensured that a woman took up three times as much space as a man and always presented very dramatic, imposing spectacle. At their most extreme, in the French court of Marie Antoinette, panniers could extend the skirt several feet at each side.
These size panniers work well for Marie Antoinette French Colonial stage and theatre presentations, historical period events, balls, carnival, faires, Bastille Day presentations,cosplay, reenactments, drama clubs,collectors historical television productions , and more.
