Here are details of the skirt of my 1900s gingham wash dress.
The skirt’s measurements are similar to the 1901 skirt Astarte (without the flounce). But I’ve made a gored skirt which ‘is better better than a circular skirt, because the bias sides of that stretch and pull badly’ (source).
The skirt consists of five pieces; always an edge cut on the straight grain and bias grain meet at the seams (apart from the back seam) (as on this 1905 cotton dress).
The skirt has a pleat at the back which most of the edwardian dresses had.
The skirt has a deep hem, as can be seen on this 1906 dress. This 1910 source says that ‘all tub frocks should be short’ (source), ‘ankle length is permissible and very smart’ (source). So I’ve made my skirt also ankle-length. The high grass is misleading 😉 , the skirt doesn’t trail on the ground.
