This petticoat pattern it quite every easy. I’m using TV (Truly Victorian) Pattern TV 170. This pattern has four variations you can use depending on the year.
First cut out all your pattern pieces depending on which year you decided to use. I then serge each piece to make sure that the material won’t fray.
I then sewn the darts in the front and sewn each of the front pieces together
For the back you take each piece and sew up to the marking and stop. On each side of the pack you will then fold in the seam on each side down
On the back florence you sew tucks. I actually did to many and later had to take some out. Best to do small ones and not to many you can always put more in if you need to.
Now baste the top of the florence. Next sew it to the bottom of the back .
Attach the fluorescence to the back of the two sewn half together. Now you should have an almost completed petticoat.
The the fun part each piece of the ruffle you need to sew together to make this one very long piece. When you have that finished. Start basting and pull to make gathers to fit on the bottom of your petticoat.
Sew the ruffle onto the bottom of the petticoat.
Waistband is now finished. Take some string and lace it through the waist band.
Side and back without the bustle
Petticoat over bustle.
