The fabric is cut to form a half circle when laid flat and it closes at the center back with two (2) metal snaps and one (1) metal hook-and-eye. The bottom is further lined in plastic buckram. There are ruffles made from synthetic buckram sewn at each proper side on the bottom interior half of the crinoline to create further side support and fullness.
