Just the Facts
What the item is: Flannel Petticoat to keep me warm.
Material: 3 Yards Red Cotton Flannel
Pattern: Flannel Petticoat from the Workwoman’s Guide
Year: 1830’s & 40’s
Notions: thread, twill tape for ties and hem.
How historically accurate is it? Should be wool flannel instead of cotton and the threads used are polyester/cotton mix. Plus I added twill tape over the hem since the cotton is a little flimsy but it’s all hand sewn so 85% maybe.
Hours to complete: a week total but not all at once.
First worn: only to test hem length, but it is comfortable and WARM.
Cost: I'm thinking around $25, but I didn't actually keep track
