Lauren of American Duchess fame, created this tutorial on crafting an 18th century petticoat…..and who doesn’t need a new petticoat for spring? She says, “The cool thing about 18th c. petticoats is that they have a special and awesome way of being both adjustable to the wearer, and including secret pocket-slits so you can access your secret hanging pockets. Petticoats can be worn as underskirts, just on their own, or you can pile them up to create extra-huge puffy skirts. They can also be worn for other big-skirted centuries.” We love the knife pleating details. A poufy petticoat would be whimsically perfect to wear while swinging to and fro under a weeping willow tree, cloud watching, and day dreaming. Then afterwards, a wee tea-time picnic would be marvelous!
