Have you ever wondered what you're supposed to wear underneath those sheer Regency era frocks? Well, this is the perfect solution! This pattern is for a petticoat (slip) with a fitted bodice and attached skirt.
Also includes a bum pad that makes the skirts of your gown fall gracefully from the bottom of the bodice, and not collapse in at the small of your back, which is very helpful for the Regency era silhouette.
And if you've wondered where to stash your phone and cash while in costume, the pocket is a fantastic and useful accessory that keeps you looking period perfect while keeping your modern conveniences handy and yet hidden.
This wonderful pattern is by fellow California based pattern maker, Laughing Moon.
