I made a three tier petticoat from a wonderful 100% Egyptian cotton fitted sheet from the Hotel Balfour purchased, of course, at a thrift store! It was such a wonderful fabric to work with I wish I had bolts and bolts of it. I made the “pattern” myself.
Because I used my Janome Ruffler foot, my rolled hem foot and my serger, I had to do NO HAND GATHERING or basting. As a result, this petticoat was finished in 2 hours. I took my time with my pattern calculations and when cutting my fabric strips so that everything would match up and it paid off.
I have done a 2 part tutorial on my blog if you are interested in the instructions. This petticoat goes wonderfully with my green gingham dress and other skirts I have recently made.
