This petticoat is one of our first DIYs and a classic. First featured on RocknRoll Bride it's been a great success for everyone that sews it. It is also the pattern we use for all of our underskirts over at Alexandra King.
So here we go ...
Step 3: Double the the waistband fabric over and sew the short ends together. Then hem it by folding the fabric and stitching it down. Repeat this to make a channel at the top to thread your elastic.
Step 4: Attaching the tulle. Take the tulle and with your fingers gather or bunch it as you sew it to the hem of the waistband. Overlap each piece by an inch or so and continue until you have filled up the waistband with your six pieces of gathered tulle.
Step 5. Thread the elastic through the waist channel using the paperclip and tie in a knot. This creates the elasticated waistband. And there’s your basic underskirt!
Step 6. If you want to sew more, you can trim the hem with ribbon binding. This stops the tulle being scratchy and from catching on your dress.
To make the petticoat a rainbow one, repeat the process and add more layers of different colours!
Don't forget if you have any questions just ask. Enjoy making x
