Puff Hip Bustles
The PUFF lace-on HIP BUSTLES by Moresca are made in our signature custom made striped rayon-poly Matisse fabric and poly taffeta, edged with cotton-poly bias and mounted on canvas-backed fronts and backs with grommets for lacing. These match our Puff Top, Puff Sleeves, and any of our items that use Matisse or Taffeta fabrics, highlighting just about any of our many other items and outfits.
Sizing is flexible because of the front and back lacing, allowing for anywhere from closed to 3+ inch openings.
Laced fully closed they measure:
S - 25"
L - 32"
Care: these can be machine washed cool and drip dried or dry cleaned.
The inspiration for these came largely from the original illustrations in "The children in the story" from "Mary Poppins in the Park" by P.L.Travers.
We would have called them "Poppins" in her honor, but for the unfortunate association with Disney's version, which is the one mostly known in the US.
Great shame, that. It bears little resemblance to the stories of the original British nanny, who was deeply mysterious and clearly had connections with all the pantheons of deities in the Cosmos.
P.L. Travers herself was disgusted with the Disney film, on the set of which she was invited as consultant, though largely overruled or ignored. See article:
The story is well worth a read, it's about Veritain, Amor and Florimond, ; - Truth, Love and Beauty, in the guise of three young princes.
