Wounded but still beautiful ankle length Edwardian cotton petticoat makes a beautifully romantic summer maxi skirt.
There is no fullness at the waist, the skirt is on a waistband and is made of panels which create a slight flare to form an A-line shape. The deep hem has a horizontal tuck and a wide lace border made from three tiers of different laces stitched together, the central strip being threaded through with silk peach ribbon. There is an underneath layer of scalloped floral lace. The fabric is pleated into the opening at the back to gather up a slight fullness. Closes with a hook and eye and a snap fastener. No labels, it's probably a homemade garment - 1910s.
