Nice petticoat. Cotton is thicker material then expected.

Purchased for me...
I purchased this petticoat so that I wouldn't have to make myself one for an upcoming event. I was hopeful that it would fit. Sadly I am right at the end of the size chart this this was just a bit snug. That's ok, I was able to let my niece use it she is much smaller than I am and the extra fullness was good under her 1890s walking skirt. The fabric was lovely and soft. And shipping was super quick.

Attractive and comfortable
The slip is nicely made with a soft fabric that washed and dried nicely. I'm tall and it hits me at my ankles, which is fine.

Just the perfect layer I needed below a few of my bustle skirts. Very soft and flowy fabric. Exactly what I had hoped for. Thank You!!!

This petticoat is so wonderful. I definitely recommend if you have any of the walking skirts. It is super soft and really feels great under the skirt.

Always great petticoats
I've always been very pleased with the quality and price of these petticoats. I am a costume designer, and the first set I bought years ago are still in terrific shape after repeated washing.

Pretty Petticoat
Uncertain of size to order, so I went with Large. Fit good..and with the adjustable draw string, it was secured and gave a nice fullness to the black walking skirt worn over the top. The ruffled hemline gave a very nice affect and petticoat added additional warmth this early, chilly Fall.

It makes such a delicious SWISH sound when you...
Initially, I ordered this in an XL for my 40" waist and I had to exchange it for a large. It is a nice weight of cotton. Not so light that I fear to wear and tear it, but not so heavy that the waist tie binds. Really simply perfect. I wore it around town this winter under another skirt (or three - I'm so not used to this thing called "winter"). The extra ruffled layer that goes from just under the knee to the ground really made a difference on the wind-up-the-skirt chill factor and yet, being cotton, was not uncomfortable when indoors where this marvel called "electric heat" was up and running. Also, it is a titch longer for a section at the rear of the skirt. For the first time in my life, I found a skirt wasn't shorter in back than in front when worn with my overly large keister (I could make Kim Kardashian jealous!). In fact, that extra 2" of length is just enough to make it hang level to the ground should you decide to wear it over a bustle. Liked it so much, I bought it in white, too. :)

Versitile & comfortable
This is a really useful skirt. It's light and full enough for an under-skirt. I've also "cheated" and worn it as an outer-skirt in hot weather/environments. If you put a belt over the waist you can't see the drawstring, and it passes nicely for a walking skirt. I'm very happy it's 100% cotton, so it's breathable in warm weather.

Can't beat the quality
I have purchased other "costume-type" clothing from other sellers online and you never know what you're going to get. Often it is cheap, flimsy, thin material, with bad sewing, crooked seams,skimpy cut, etc. Not so with this lovely petticoat. The fabric is thick and excellent-quality. The workmanship is excellent- I am a seamstress myself so I do recognise when things are very well-made. Given the amount of fabric used (very generous) and the quality of it (where do they get their cotton? Because I can't find anything this nice at the usual fabric stores), as well as the craftsmanship of the construction- I could not make this petticoat for what I paid for it here. The styling is excellent and versatile. I can wear this under a Renaissance skirt with a peasant blouse and bodice, or I could layer it under a Victorian gown for the Dicken's Faire. Or....I may just toss on a french sailor tee-shirt and wear it to the beach!

pretty enough to wear as a skirt
This petticoat is so pretty and so well made, I wear it as a skirt and I get lots of compliments. Because of the tie waist, it will fit whether I gain or lose. I will buy the white petticoat now that I know it's worth every penny!

HIgh Quality Petticoat
I was surprised at the quality of this petticoat. I didn't expet such a high thread count cotton nor did I expect the level of detail. Love it

Hard to find item. Elastic waist plus an option to tighten with sturdy tie string. Will look great under a swing dress for upcoming theme party. Before I knew it, the item arrived. I ALWAYS wash each garment before wearing. Held up fine with mild detergent with hand washing. and line dry. Very full petticoat that stays soft.

I bought it as part of a costume. It is so well-made and lovely I find myself trying to think of dresses I have that I can wear it with for regular use.
