crinoline of a Queen by Eselia crinoline of a Queen by Eselia

Today I started with the crinoline for my Queen Esther coronation dress.
So much love! <3
It isnt finish yet (bent and crooked XD)
I still need 40 meters of steel. Then I can continue.
I didn´t want to buy a hoop skirt or a crinoline, because I do not find a suitable crinoline for my needs
Also, I love to sew such things. I'm just a lover of crinolines, corsets and other historical clothing. <3
(Yes I know that the costume of Esther is not historically accurate.)
Hope you like the crinoline. 

Heute habe ich mit der Krinoline für Queen Esther angefangen. Es ist wieder einmal die pure Liebe! Wie man auf dem Bild sehen kann, ist er längst noch nicht fertig. Es fehlen noch ca. 40 Meter Krinolinenstahlband, also ein paar Queerbindungen. Noch ist die Krinoline krumm und schief. Aber das wird schon mit mehr Stahlband ^,^ Wie immer wollte ich keinen Reifrock kaufen. Zum einen finde ich keinen der mir gefällt und wenn ich doch mal einen gefunden habe, der gehen könnte, ist er einfach unbezahlbar. Aber was solls. Ich liebe es so oder so, Krinolinen, Korsetts und andere Dinge zu nähen *___*
Es macht einfach nur Spaß!

Thank you!
How to make the crinoline?
Ì don´t speak very good englisch, so it´s difficult for me to explain  the prozess how to build a crinoline.
But I hope that I can help you a little bit.
At first, you need some "Wigonafederstahlband". 
That is the german word. Here a picture of it:
I don´t know the english word for it. Perhaps "crinoline steal"
And then you sew some  fabric tunnel. 

Here are some tutorials. 
These are tutorials for hoop skirts.
But the principle is the same for crinolines.

What form for a crinoline you need?
Or more of a hoop skirt?
There are also bustles and Paniere

Ask if you have questions.
I hope I can answer them to you.

Actually Im thinking about making it with the boning, and just make it in black fabric maybe.. or grey, and then ADD the details.. ^^ but I can tell you, you helped a lot already

As you can see there are one under, its not a full crinoline, its more off some extra to hold the back :)
