For my 1840s dress I needed to build up my undies collection. I needed more petticoats because the 1840s had big skirts but no hoops to hold them up. They were held up with several layers of starched petticoats.
I’m not sure that they used anything but white in that decade so I may have taken some creative liberties. When I bought the fabric I would need for lining my dress, I bought twice as much as I’d need so I could make all of the petticoats with it too.
I hope I will have time tomorrow to make the ruffled petticoat that will go over these two.
That’s all for now folks! I’ll pop by again tomorrow.
