Frills, ruffles and lace were a discerning part of a lady's undergarments from the late Victorian - Edwardian - Titanic era. The princess style petticoat was also a newcomer to the scene, during this time period, too.
This lovely princess petticoat, in batiste cotton, is constructed of 9 gores through the body of the petticoat, which gives it flare and fit. Pretty Valenciennes lace is inset on the yoke and also trims the neckline / armhole area. Pink silk ribbon is used for the drawstring at the neck line to adjust the fit. Buttons close the back opening partial down the back of petticoat. A wide double ruffle forms the hem line of the slip. The under ruffle is of plain cotton fabric with the outer ruffle fancy. Six rows of pin tucks and two row of Valencieness lace accents this outer ruffle.
Measurements: 51" long from the middle of the shoulder to the hem. 30" around the bust and 31" around the natural waist. Condition is very nice although may find a small pinhole or two. Freshly laundered and pressed.
A nice piece for photography or costuming.
