One Pattern for all your Petticoat needs!
Possibly the most ubiquitous female garment in every time period is the petticoat. In the 19th century, skirts went truly mad. The round skirts of the 1830s and 40s expanded to great widths in the 1850s and the petticoats provided shape and support. By the 1860s, the bulk began to shift backwards and petticoats changed to match.
This pattern includes them all in their nearly infinite variety!
