TV244 - 1859 Double Skirt


Score: 5.00 (votes: 1)

This skirt design was very popular in the late 1850's, and is seen in most fashion magazines during this period. Just as the name implies, is has an underskirt with a flounce, and a top skirt. The skirt base can be made of lining fabric to economize, or of dress fabric. The wide lower flounce gives lots of fullness at the hem (a total of 225"), to fit over any size hoop.

The most common style of trimming shown for this skirt is on the lower edge of the upper skirt. The lower flounce was usually left plain. Stripes, fringe, lace, ruffles, and puffings were all used.

    The instructions are easy to understand and thorough, while the pattern itself is relatively simple and quick to put together. The skirt is wonderfully voluminous over a crinoline, and comfortable to wear. I even wear the overskirt (sans crinoline) paired with my modern-day clothes, it's cute and flowy!
