A beautiful summer white petticoat from the Victorian or Edwardian time era. The cotton slip is embellished with a gorgeous machine embroidered ruffle of Broderie Anglaise. The 15" wide ruffle is layered over a under ruffle of plain white fabric.
Eyelet beading trim and the lacing of blue silk ribbon separates the ruffle from the main body of the skirt. This certainly gives the petticoat an extra accent. The waist band has a drawnstring for adjusting the fit.
The length of the petticoat is 36" long from waist to the hem. 26" around the waist, however, would adjust slightly smaller. This petticoat has been acquired from a small Ohio museum and does have the inventory number tag attached to the undergarment.
Condition: Petticoat has been freshly laundered and pressed. It is in very nice condition, itself. However, the blue ribbon is shattered. It could be kept, replaced, or taken out. A note: on examination, I found the beading eyelet does not extend completely around the petticoat. Evidently the seamstress was short 2", but used it anyway. The ribbon was just laced over top of this gap, so really doesn't show. Besides it in on the back side.
