Finished Petticoat

Challenge number two of the Historical Sew Fortnightly is finished! A few months ago in a fit of boredom I started a petticoat out of a white and pale blue striped cotton/poly blend I had bought from the clearance bin. The fabric has a gorgeous sheen to it but it was blemished in quite a few areas so I wasn't too sad to use it up on a petticoat. I got distracted from the project halfway through and never picked it back up though, so when the UFO (Un-Finished Object) challenge came up I knew it was time to finally finish the petticoat.

When I came back to the project I realized I had cut the petticoat rather wide. I considered reducing it since it's probably wide enough to fit over a hoop skirt but in the end decided to keep it the way it was. It will fill out my skirts nicely at least!

Since the project didn't take me too long to finish I've gained myself an extra weekend for the next project, Underneath It All. I plan to complete a corset and chemise with my extra time, and then I'll have a full set of brand new underthings!
