I needed a crinoline in a hurry to photograph several 50s and 60s dress for my vintage shop. I whipped this up on the weekend based on elegant-impression’s patterrn for the 50s petticoat. I only made one layer instead of two, since I wanted a softer day crinoline rather than a very full crinoline for a gown. I also made some small tweaks here and there. I have a newfound respect for the patience of crinoline makers. :)
Voile for the ruffles and lawn for the waist band.
