C.1850-1860. An early fullpetticoat
that was originally worn over a horsehair crinoline, and then later used over the cage crinolines. It is gauged
around the waistband for equal fullness all round (it is shown over a late elliptical crinoline which does not give it it's proper shape). The bottom of the skirt is decorated
with pintucks and a wide panel of Broderie Anglaise. The right side of the skirt has a hidden pocket and the back
fastens with a button. Waist measures 30".
