I have a lot of petticoats after only 4 years of reenacting, but I love making them by hand. They are so easy and it’s just so beautiful to watch the garment take shape. For the latest one, the last steps are hemming the ends of the ties and hemming the edge. Here is a pic of the petticoat with my round gown. My studio has fluorescent lighting and really does not do the fabrics justice. 









Unfortunately, I don’t have my mannequin wearing my stays so the bodice of the gown looks a little odd. It does not pull like that when I wear it. I mean, I could have put on all my clothing just to take photos in the new petticoat, but that seemed like a lot of work, especially because no one is here to tie my stays properly.
