This beautiful petticoat belonged to Alice Cecilia, a great-aunt in the family : and it is how we are able to date it to the late 19th century or the early 20th when she lived in England, in the West Country.

Made of fine cotton lawn, with 3 cotton covered buttons to close and handmade buttonholes. The broderie anglaise frill is delicate and almost perfect : there is one little ` invisible' mend of about an inch in length but it's almost impossible to find !

It looks as if there is a casing around the uppermost edge, perhaps for a drawstring.

It measures 34 inches around the top edge. The main skirt is 28 inches long and the frill is about 7 inches deep.

It is light and comfortable, pure simple white cotton - and needs to be seen, not hidden !
