I always found Victorian tucked petticoats pretty, but I dreaded sewing all those tucks! 😉 But now I’ve finally sewn one.
It’s inspired by petticoats such as this 1850-60s tucked broderie anglaise petticoat, these two lace petticoats with tucks and this 1900s petticoat. Here’s another shorter tucked petticoat and two tucked petticoats: 1850s petticoat and 1868 petticoat.
I used the ruler on my sewing machine for the tucks, so it wasn’t difficult at all to sew all those tucks.
Now I’ll just have to starch the petticoat.
