PETTICOAT SEW ALONG

Petticoat was the common term used for what we would call a skirt today!  There were underpetticoats (like a half slip) and fashion petticoats.  They were worn under gowns or as separate garments with a jacket or other upper garment.  They were made of wool, linen, silk, cotton and some blends.  This is a great project for your first 18th century garment with easy stitches and fit.
