This lovely dress combines the corset cover and petticoat into a single garment. Also called an under-dress, or, occasionally combinations, the princess petticoat was introduced in 1877 to eliminate bulk at the waist line. When the outer dress had a train, the underskirt did, too, to keep the expensive fabric of the dress clean, and the under-dress train was often detachable so that it could be washed separately. This pattern has options for a round or square neckline. It can be made with a front or a back opening. Ruffles can be added in the back to create a small bustle effect. A detachable train option is included.This pattern includes 8 pages of instructions with historical tips, and 3 pattern sheets. It is printed on bond paper, and enclosed in a white paper envelope. All sizes Petite X-large are included.
