This pattern was created from an original in the Susan Greene Costume Collection in the Genesee Country Village and Museum in Mumford, NY. An essential garment of a woman’s wardrobe, all classes of society, on both sides of the Atlantic, could have worn strapped upper petticoats. Upper petticoats with straps were made of cotton – printed and woven such as nankeen, and wale dimity; linen – striped and solid; wool – flannel and linsey-woolsey; and silks. Wear with hight-waisted bodices or Spencer jackets. The picture shows the petticoats combined with 1790-1820 Women’s Shift and Transition Stays 1795-1810.
All sizes US 8-14 (Waist 61 – 71 cm = 24 1/2 – 28 1/2″) included.
