1880s – 1890s Short Petticoat, a Victorian underwear pattern by The Mantua-Maker Historical Sewing Patterns.
This pattern includes 6 pages of instructions with historical tips, and 2 pattern sheets. It is printed on bond paper, and enclosed in a white paper envelope.
All sizes Petite – X-large are included. Hips: 34" to 54"
During the 1880s, two petticoats were worn under the dress. Often both petticoats were the same length, but sometimes the innermost was a few inches shorter. The short petticoat (short, in this case, meaning well above the ankle but below the knee) was sometimes called the underskirt.
Because all extra bulk had to be eliminated for the underskirt to fit under the dress without adding to the waistline measurement, the petticoat, as in the case of this pattern, could be placed on a yoke.
Please read all instructions before touching your fabric. There are tips along the way to make your life easier!

FYI 1 - All instructions are in English.
FYI 2 - I do have a cat (allergy warning; my cat has such fine fur I find stray hairs in places he could *never* get to!) but he has little contact with my patterns. My home is smoke-free, but vintage books and trim may carry their own distinctive odors.
