The blog petticoat is finished!! :) I've called it the blog petticoat because the fabric it's made of is the same as our blog background. :) First off is a little scoop on the petti, and then some pictures from a quick photoshoot :). (And just so you don't get confused, this is the petticoat and stomacher I made for Caroline to wear with her RevWar gown.)
I sewed the petticoat using a mixture of machine and hand-sewing. My original plan was to hand sew the entire thing, but I've run out of time. The back is pieced linen, and the front is the patterned fabric. It is pleated and then sewed to a piece of cotton twill tape which makes the waistband/ties.
The stomacher is pink linen, re-purposed from a large shirt. I did two layers of the pink linen, and then one layer of tan linen since the pink was so lightweight. It's hand-sewn.
