Although you can make this petticoat as a skirt to wear to work or school, its main utility is in its usefulness for the time-traveler. Say your future self invents a time machine, and comes back to offer you a ride in it, say next week. Maybe the two of you want to visit the Renaissance, or maybe you’re thinking Victorian. And maybe you want to stop and see the American Colonies on the way back, or drop in on a Sock Hop. I know what you’re thinking – what do I wear? And more importantly, what do I wear under it?
Just as a space traveler’s best friend is his towel, a time traveler’s best friend is her petticoat. Fashions come and go, but for a good 400 years or so they all required some floofiness under your skirt. And before some wise woman discovered pants, a warm fluffy petticoat was the best way to keep your legs from getting cold in the winter.
Erin has a totally fabulous tutorial for making a twirly skirt. It’s for kids, but I think I wanna make it in my size! Kids always get the cutest things…it’s no fair
