Skirts For The Races

La Mode Artistique--1875 described as a toilette for the races. In 1875 the Early Bustle period began to wane. The bulk of the dress moved downward, in preparation for the Natural Form period. Skirts were narrower in front, with quite a lot of fabric behind. A skirt of this shape would have been worn with a long wire bustle, topped by a trained petticoat.
