Pattern Description: "Anyone who’s done research on historical clothing has surely come across the garments that support the silhouette. This is especially true for the Romantic Era (1820s & 30s) and Early Victorian time (1837-1850s).
Corsets & chemises aside, you’ve probably uncovered the elusive undergarment – a petticoat full of cording to help support the skirts.
No doubt, you have your own thoughts about how this garment is made. But yes, it is basically cotton cording sewn into cotton or linen fabric. Not hard, huh?"
