Figure No. 16. – LADIES’ PETTICOAT, WITH NARROW
– Black grosgrain silk was selected for the development of this
petticoat, which has a smooth-fitting front-gore, a smooth-fitting gore at each
side, and a full back-breadth that is gathered at the top, all the parts being
sewed to a yoke of moderate depth. A ruffle of the silk with a pinked edge
decorates the lower edge. Petticoats of this kind may be made of silk, muslin,
cambric or lawn, and one or more ruffles of the material or of lace or
embroidery may be used for decoration.
The pattern used in shaping is No. 7208,

LADIES’ GORED PETTICOAT-SKIRT, WITH RUFFLE-BORDERED, BIAS SPANISH
FLOUNCE FORMING THE LOWER PART.
No. 8392. Taffeta silk was chosen for making this dressy petticoat-skirt,
which, because of its deep flounce, retains the stylish flare at the foot
without unnecessary width at the waist. The skirt consists of a front-gore, two
gores at each side and a back-breadth. It is fitted smoothly at the top of the
front and sides by darts and the skirt is lengthened by a bias flounce, the
upper edge of which is turned under and shirred on a cord. To the lower edge of
the flounce is sewed a narrow, bias ruffle that holds the skirt out well from
the figure and forms a dainty finish. The flounce is ornamented by a deep, bias
trimming flounce that is turned under at the top to form a self-heading and
shirred on cords at the top and hemmed narrowly at the bottom; the trimming
flounce is decorated with two silk ruchings, the whole arrangement increasing
the flaring effect and making quite an elaborate foot-trimming. The top of the
petticoat is finished with an under-facing, which forms a casing for tapes that
are tacked back of the darts in the side-gores and drawn out through openings
made at the center of the back, thus regulating the fullness about the waist and
avoiding the need of a placket. The lower edge of the petticoat-skirt measures
three yards and a fourth round in the medium sizes.
Silk, sateen, mohair and alpaca will be appropriate for petticoats of this
style, and ribbon, beading, insertion and lace edging may be chosen for
We have pattern No. 8392 in nine sizes for ladies from twenty to thirty-six
inches, waist measure. To make the petticoat-skirt with the trimming flounce for
a lady of medium size, will need twelve yards of material twenty inches side, or
eight yards and an eighth twenty-seven inches wide, or seven yards and a fourth
thirty-six inches wide. The petticoat-skirt without the rimming flounce requires
seven yards and five-eights twenty inches wide, or five yards and three-fourths
twenty-seven inches wide, or four yards and three-fourths thirty-six inches
wide. Price of pattern, 1s. or 25 cents.

Ladies' Petticoat-Skirt Trimmings
No. 1105. Any of these three trimmings may be arranged on any style of
petticoat-skirt. The trimmings are illustrated made of silk. One trimming is a
flounce shaped in points at the lower edge and drawn by four cord-stirrings at
the top ; it is sewed on a little below the knee and extends to within a short
distance of the lower edge of the petticoat-skirt over a decoration of two
frills of lace edging applied to the bottom of the petticoat-skirt. A frill of
similar edging headed by three rows of ribbon follows the lower edge of the
flounce and rosettes are set on the upper row between the points.
Another trimming is a flounce shirred on one cord at the top and shaped at
the bottom in points that are prettily pinked and reach nearly to the bottom of
the petticoat-skirt, which is decorated with a side-plaiting of silk pinked at
the lower edge. A triple box-plaited silk ruche trims the flounce near the top,
adding to both the decorative effect and the flare.
The flounce in the other trimming consists of long tabs that widen toward the
bottom and are separated by bands of wide ribbon-run beading. It is sewed
smoothly to the petticoat-skirt under a row of ribbon-run beading, the ribbon
being formed in rosette bows at intervals. The ribbon in each upright row of
beading is arranged in two loops and an end over a lace frill at the lower edge
of the flounce. The lace on the flounce is held out well by a bias ruffle of the
goods joined to the lower edge of the petticoat-skirt, the ruffle showing just a
trifle below the lace.
No silk is considered too rich for the petticoat-skirt of to-day, and
trimmings of lace, insertion, ribbon, rosettes and beading may be arranged in
any desired manner.
Pattern No. 1105 is in one size only. Quantities for these trimmings are not
given because the amount required varies according to the widths of the
petticoat-skirts to which they are applied. Price of pattern, 5d. or 10 cents.
