Victorian Underwear, Petticoat, Hoop Skirt

New custom made or wedding petticoats and hoop skirts can make great, affordable, crinolines for civil war dresses and Victorian ballgowns. Even Victorian bustle gowns and Edwardian walking skirts need a good petticoat to give the dress a correct shape. For early Victorian a wide round hoop is essential. For mid Victorian, an elliptical shape with volume at the back is best. For the bustle era and late Victorian a ruffled petticoat is needed. Don’t forget proper underwear: bloomers, chemise, drawers, knickers, camisole, stockings, and corset.  If you prefer, links to sewing patterns are included as well.
