Product Description

This Four Gore Underskirt is drafted based on a tailoring method actually used in the 1880's. It can be made flat in back, to be worn either with an overskirt or polonaise, or with the back bouffant and the front decorated. The skirt is flat in front with gathers or pleats in back, with the extra fullness shifted to the back. It has the three front gores and full width in back that were popular at that time. The placket is in the left side back seam. An optional 6" ruffle can be added to the hem. This skirt is suitable for just about everything during the period of 1883-1889. It can be left plain for day wear, or elaborately trimmed for evening. Mix and match overskirts for different looks. This pattern also can be used for petticoats. All sizes included in the package.

  1. Very clear instructions 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jul 2014

    This is an excellent pattern for an underskirt which I used with the 1884 Wash Overskirt and 1885 Cuirass Bodice. The instructions were very clear (a plus in my book with vintage patterns), and the results were excellent!
