Petticoat HC8

White cotton waist petticoat with deep frill at the bottom in a Victorian Style.

An undergarment generally worn under a dress or skirt. First worn in the 1500s to give shape to domed overskirts. Petticoats were to become very elaborate with the use of layers of lace and hoops. By the 1950s everyday use of the petticoat had dwindled.
