Lacy 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 pretty trim on the bottom of the skirt is inset handmade crochet lace with narrow pleats which are also hand stitched. The skirt has been made longer as you can see from the fourth photo which shows where a pleat has been let out.
It is in good condition - see the last two photos where there are some yellowy 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 62cm (24inches) but will extend to a waist of 91cm (36inches with loose gathers). The length is 97cm (38inches)
Care instructions: machine wash 30C, line dry.
