The most treasured item in an 18th century lady's wardrobe wss an elaborately quilted petticoat worn for both fashion and warmth. Overskirts were raised, divided, and pulled aside to display the elegant handwork. Western pioneers made simpler calico versions of this skirt; later Victorian versions were machine-quilted taffeta with flounces.
The slimming effect of this skirt is due to a concentration of the quilting in the lower part of the skirt, while the upper skirt section is lined with fabric alone. Ours falls in gathers from a narrow waistband with a placketed side opening. It may be cut ankle-or calf-length. View A uses commercial pre-quilted fabrics; Views B and C may be machine or hand quilted; View C has a more elaborate quilting design and no ruffle. Transfers are given for a typical floral spray design and grid.
The skirt is very pretty today with a lacy blouse or knitted top for casual day wear or romantic evenings, especially in cooler climes.
