Product Description

This pattern is multi-sized 8 through 26.

The Two Strapped, High-Waisted Upper Petticoats pattern was created from an original in the Susan Greene Costume Collection in the Genesee Country Village and Museum in Mumford, NY. There were sufficient clues to determine that the original early nineteenth century petticoat had been refashioned by letting out the tuck and creating gores to make it fuller for the 1820s.

The professional art on the cover, the documented historical notes, and the detailed instructions you have come to expect from Past Patterns are contained in the booklet that comes with the multi-sized pattern. As a bonus Susan Greene has included an article in the historical notes to guide you in choosing printed cottons by color and detail to match your social impression. Susan W. Greene is the author of "Wearable Prints, 1760-1860, History, Materials, and Mechanics"

All classes of society, on both sides of the Atlantic, could have worn strapped upper petticoats.

Upper petticoats with straps were made of cotton - printed and woven such as nankeen, and wale dimity; linen - striped and solid; wool - flannel and linsey-woolsey; and silks.
