Hi everyone,

I've been in love with the vintage vogue patterns lately but some of the fuller dresses definitely need a crinoline or petticoat so they don't just hang shaplessley. I'm tempted to chop apart my wedding gown to use as a pattern (let's face it, I'll never take that out of the box again) since the crinoline was the perfect fullness. I could just draft my own, but I'm feeling a bit lazy and just want to follow some premade instructions. So... Does anyone have a go to pattern they use?

Petticoats PR thread

You can find some inspiration here. There is a link to the TV Guide article about how Alice Lon's mother made the fluffy petticoats that she wore on the Lawrence Welk show - definitely a true vintage pattern. In the Alice Lon version, the edges of the tulle are bound with satin ribbon, which creates quite a striking visual whenever a "peek" of petticoat is exposed.

Oh, that link is wonderful! I've been meaning to tackle a petticoat project myself, but the cost of all the nylon net is a bit off-putting. Thanks for sharing, though. :)

Ambersage,
The good news is that you don't need a pattern. Several years ago when sewing for my DD's wedding I did a post on how to make a crinoline. It sounds as if you may want yours to be fuller, which means more gathering and/or more layers of netting. Click here to learn how to make a crinoline
Good luck,
Annette
