Corded Petticoat

I started to try some 1830s and 40s costumes, so I needed a corded petticoat!

I used "Sugar 'n Cream" crochet yarn from Joanne's for the cording. And I used 2 widths of quilter's cotton for the petticoat. I sewed them together before I did the cording. Also, I was careful to start the rows of cording in different spots so that there wouldn't be one line where there was a break in the cording that might be a collapse point.

Here is the web page for my costume construction details and more photos:
