fashion quiz: the weight of the skirt...

have you worn a crinoline lately? if you've wanted to put a little bounce into your circle skirt...then you have...but if you had a choice between a steel hoop skirt...or a cotton crinoline...which would you choose?

today's fashion quiz: which weighs more...a steel hoop skirt or cotton crinolines?

if you chose cotton crinolines...then you are right! metal hoop skirts tended to weigh between 8 and 24 ounces...and were therefore much lighter than layers and layers of stiff cotton...
