brown here I come!
Well I’ve gone through my class notes and flipped through a few books so I’m off to start sewing those skirts…

I decided on the brown linen for the petticoat and ordered that last night. You guys had some good points about my choices and I thank you heartily for your impute. I really liked them both but in the end it came down to the fact that I really wanted the brown more. I’m just a brown-type girl I guess. :>

I can’t wait until it arrives!

Oh yay!! How much did you order for the petticoat? I'm starting to calculate how much I need. :p Too much for my little brain late at night (which is when I sat down and tried to figure it out!).

Can't wait to see how the skirts come out!! As soon as I finish my computer stuff I'm off to work on my bodice (see what you're doing--motivating me! :D).

I ordered 3yds. With my height, that should give me a front and back panel, 54" wide each, and a little extra. If I think I can get away with less fullness I may cut a bit off, combine it with the extra and add a ruffle. A nice, wide, box pleated ruffle. :>

It's been so long since I made a petticoat, I'm just guessing really.
