1870s Underskirt (TV201)



This skirt is drafted based on a tailoring method actually used in the 1870’s. It is designed to be worn with an overskirt or polonaise, and bustle TV101 or TV108 (see Underwear 1870-1915). The full skirt is flat in front with gathers or pleats in back, with the extra fullness shifted to the back. It has the traditional five gores and a full width in back. An optional 12″ ruffle can be added to the hem. This skirt is suitable for just about everything. It can be left plain for day wear, or elaborately trimmed for evening. Mix and match overskirts for different looks or use the pattern for petticoats.

Sizes XS-XXL (Waist 50 – 100 cm = 20 – 40″) included.
