I made this petticoat to wear underneath my 50’s Betty Draper inspired dress and 50’s Charlotte dress. I wanted a vintage inspired pretty undergarment to wear with these dresses to add a little volume to the circle skirts. I thought about buying one but I could only find tulle ones (that would be too scratchy against my skin) that were either too short, too long or too puffy. I made it from a sheet I bought at a local department store. This Petticoat is my own design. It took about 3 hours to complete. I have uploaded instructions on how to make it.
Double cotton sheet and pretty cotton trim, white thread and elastic for waistband
