Today’s project is something that I’ve actually been wanting to try out for a good long while but had never gotten around to. I own a lot of dresses, like a lot a lot, and several of them tend to look a little flat if I don’t have anything to perk them up so I’ve started to get into the business of learning to make petticoats. They’re great at making your dresses look full and flirty and if you make them at home then you can control how many layers they have and you don’t have to shop around searching for the ever elusive “perfect petticoat”.
Knit fabric, I actually used part of an old t-shirt I had lying around
I cannot say that I would really condone making a petticoat in such varying colors, but it’s great for making a tutorial! To “style” this all you do is put it on under your dress, as high or low on your waist as you’re comfortable with, and when you’re wearing your dress it will look a lot fuller. I have some dresses that really just don’t look very good when they lie flat, but look excellent with a little bit of life to them. You might want to stave off adding multiple layers until you’ve had a little more experience making these.
Lots of Love,
