This is a made to measure item, please provide the following measurements:
1. waist circumference, measured over your corset
2. length - waist to mid calf - corsed petticoats are relatively short, allowing for standard petticoat to cover the last few inches!
If you woudl like a simple petticoat to go over the corded one, please get in touch!
traditional - machine is used throughout, as suitable for the era
modern - overlocker ( serger) is used om the edges, for a fast and secure finish.
Fabric choices - all period correct, all machine washable
Cotton sheeting - light, white and durable - the cheapest option!
Cotton cambric - stiffer than sheeting, with a gloss, comes in off white/ ivory. Durable, sturdy but light and lovely to touch - my favourite for a historical petticoat! shown in the picture
Cotton twill - thicker than sheeting, but a softer hand, a bit heavier too. Durable and soft.
Delivery time - please allow 3-4 weeks for making the item.
