A Victorian skirt pattern, created by Deb Salisbury, owner of The Mantua-Maker Historical Sewing Patterns. The "round" skirt was sometimes used as a plain over-skirt, but usually it was used as a foundation skirt, covered with some kind of drapery: the polonaise, apron draperies, a pleated over-skirt, a princess robe, flounces, passementerie, or any combination thereof.

The foundation skirt was a product of this era, coming into existence in 1885 as an independent garment because "it seemed impossible to face the world in a single skirt" and disappearing toward the end of 1891. Before 1885, the foundation skirt was most often physically attached to the over-skirts.

This pattern is for the basic foundation skirt, with special adaptations for the 1879 -1881 hobble style skirts and the 1883 - 1887 aggressive bustle. It has a side placket and a pocket on the opposite side.

This pattern includes 7 pages of instructions with historical tips, and 3 pattern sheets. It is printed on bond paper, and enclosed in a white paper envelope. All sizes Petite – X-large are included.

Please read all instructions before touching your fabric. There are tips along the way to make your life easier!
