Frilly Antique French Petticoat
This antique French cotton petticoat known as a jupon is made from a mid-weight white cotton, so would be suitable to wear as a skirt, it closes with a tie that gathers at the waist. The initials FF have been embroidered on the front of the waist band. The pretty trim on the bottom of the skirt is entirely hand stitched broderie anglaise with narrow pleats which are also hand stitched.
It is in excellent condition - see the last photo where there are some small marks on the front hem of the skirt. Suitable for customisation or just wear as it is - a pretty summer skirt. There are a lot of gathers in this skirt, so plenty of fabric should you wish to make it larger, or use the fabric for other projects.
Size: With the gathers pulled tight the waist measures 66cm (26inches) but will extend to a waist of 91cm (36inches with loose gathers). The length is 82cm (32inches)
Care instructions: machine wash 30C, line dry.
