Fabric for free petticoat

Postby jewels » Mon Jun 11, 2018 3:38 pm

Hi Heather,
I'd like to use eyelet for this but am confused a bit. Did you use a 45 inch allover eyelet fabric that had an edging?
I've looked and can't seem to find fabric that wide with just the edging on the bottom.
Thanks, Julie

Wow, looks like it is getting hard to find. I usually get this stuff downtown LA fabric district for about $2/yard.

But I found some online, https://www.fabricwholesaledirect.com/p ... 0489239308

There is usually a bolt or two of something at Joanns, but I don't see online. It is out there. Maybe try Etsy, or Amazon.com? https://www.amazon.com/Allover-Cotton-E ... B0061GFPZ2

One more fabric question. I'm waiting for TV 102 to come today and will be searching for fabric. Is it possible to use the white muslin that Joann's carries for both the chemise and drawers or would you suggest something else. Thanks again.

Yes, the white muslin will work very well. I've used this fabric for underwear, and I like it a lot.
