1830s - 1860s Petticoat

A 127" three panel petticoat in pima cotton broadcloth. There are three tucks, flat felled seams and stroked gathers, with the fullness distributed evenly all the way around. The waistband sits 1" below my natural waist, which I find avoids bulkiness at the waist.

This petticoat is shown over a bell shaped hoop.
