I’ve wanted to make a petticoat ever since I first started sewing. After seeing the petticoat variation project for the Elizabeth Gathered-Waist Dress in BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern, I decided to go for it and finally make one!
I searched for petticoat and tutu pictures for inspiration and read through a few different tutorials (including the variation project in the book). In the end though, I mostly improvised and played around with the fabric as I sewed.
I’m pretty excited about this latest addition to my wardrobe because now I can make any skirt pouffy!
