Victorian Tucked Petticoat

Victorian Tucked Petticoat

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 antique Victorian tucked petticoats such as this mid-Victorian tucked petticoat at the MET museum, this late Victorian tucked petticoat and this shorter Victorian tucked petticoat.

The join of the DIY scalloped broderie anglaise lace and fabric is hidden behind the first tuck. And the petticoat is gathered into cartridge pleats at the waist.

I used the ruler on my sewing machine for the tucks. So it wasn’t difficult at all to sew all those tucks.
