Make the perfect Edwardian underskirt!
Possibly the most ubiquitous female garment in every time period is the skirt. Once the decadence of the Victorian Age wore off, skirts remained. At the turn of the 20th century, they were still long and fairly full, but they were decorated in more subtle ways.
Our easy-to-use umbrella petticoat skirt pattern, based on an original pattern from the Edwardian period, helps you make the perfect look.
Fits waists 20" through 40" and hips 30" through 50". All sizes in one envelope.
Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.
