This is a lovely white cotton petticoat dating to the Victorian era.  The petticoat has a 12” flounce that is embroidered, decorated with tuck pleats and eyeleted at the bottom.  The piece has an opening at the top back and does up with a drawstring sewn into the waistline of the petticoat from the front sides around the back.  The front does not have a drawstring through the waist and the petticoat is constructed with five panels, except for the bottom flounce.  The waist can be adjusted from 21” to 46” using the drawstring.
