|Cream quilted silk petticoat|
The Challenge: Tucks & Pleating - make a garment that features tucks and pleating for the shape or decoration
Material: cream quilted silk and cream silk dupioni for lining
Pattern: JP Ryan petticoat instructions from memory, so half made up ;)
Year: late 18th century
Notions: Silk satin ribbon for ties
How historically accurate is it? Pretty close. The side seams and insides were done by machine as was the quilted silk. The hem waistband, ties, pocket openings and anything visible were hand sewn.
Hours to complete: Probably about 5-6 hours
First worn: Not yet worn: made for CoCo 2016.
Total cost: Both from stash. Quilted silk was bought with a 50% coupon at G Street Fabrics last year, and the cream silk dupioni was bought on online sale.
