All you have to do is watch a movie like "Gone with the Wind" to see an example of how different women's fashion was during the 1800s compared to the 2000s. One of the most common items worn was a Civil War hoop skirt. Luckily, you do not have to be Scarlett O'Hara to wear one, and you do not have to make your own from the curtains on your wall, thanks to the vast inventory on eBay. Whether you like to attend reenactments, want to wear a period Halloween costume, or you just need it for a fancy wedding gown, you can find the perfect Civil War hoop skirt for you. You need to know how full you want it to be. The 4-hoop skirt is a popular size, but the more hoops or "bones" it has in it, the fuller it becomes. Most fall within the 2 to 6 range. The ones made during the Civil War era actually had real whale bones in them. Most of the skirts are white and made from crinoline, although you may find some variants on the color and material, such as black or cotton.
