19th Century Cotton Petticoat

This 19th century petticoat is very versatile for the whole century depending on the “class” of costume my client chooses to wear.  Made with beautiful cotton with just a touch a polyester to help fight wrinkles after laundering.

The skirt is slightly gathered into a flat waistband in front. The back of the waistband has a functioning drawstring for my client to be able to choose where on her torso she wants the petticoat to sit.  The continuous placket on the left side with a hook and bar at the waist and two tiny snaps.

What is a petticoat without of luscious ruffle and a few tucks?  My client chose a beautiful 3/8″ light blue satin ribbon for a touch of color.
