1950's dress - update 4 - the crinoline

Dress so far
So this morning I made my petticoat/crinoline to make the skirt stick out. I did originally intend to use the online pattern...but in a sort out I came across an old white linen tiered skirt with elastic waist and thought Ii might cannibalize the material to save me work.

You can see I even left the little loops on for hanging it on a coathanger.

 And Here it Is at work..not quite sticky outy enough but I'm working on that....

Needs another ruffle at the bottom of skirt

  1. That crinoline looks like it should work well! I look forward to seeing how the skirt looks with it on. : )

    Happy sewing,
