~Fabulous Vintage French Wedding Petticoat~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is truly a lovely thing.

Made of the finest sheet cotton organdy, this fabulous vintage French petticoat

would have been made a long time ago for a bride to wear under her wedding dress.

And as we all know a bride wants to feel absolutely perfect and beautiful

from the inside out on her most special day.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I think this petticoat in a way sums up what is the essence of 'French-ness'. It is beautifully designed with a truly lavish use of fine materials, but at the same time it is tasteful and elegant. Almost always the French really do know just what is right...neither 'too much' nor 'not enough'...be it in home decoration, cuisine, perfume or with something like this. To my mind this petticoat with is just nearly perfect.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Not only did our grandmothers and great-grandmothers wear dainty lace from head to toe on the outside,

they wore it, as well,

underneath all those ruffles and finery

--and they always wore a very special petticoat under their wedding dress.

This one is wonderfully full and is lavished with yards and yards of fine French lace. All around this extremely full petticoat are inset panels of exquisite French Valenciennes lace making this underskirt rich and elegant and fit for a princess. The bottom edge of the petticoat is finished with a ruffle of lace which measures a full 4 and 3/4 yards around.

Wearing this under a fabulous wedding gown would give any bride the feeling that every detail,

even those unseen, are perfect.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The waist measurement is 30 inches

but any good seamstress could easily adjust that to any smaller size,

or perhaps even add a couple of inches if needed.


The skirt measures 38 inches long from waist to hem.


The hem of this wonderfully full petticoat measures 168 inches around.

In superb vintage condition this fine white petticoat is entirely without stain and

has only a few tiny repairs which are truly minor and not noticable and which are entirely hidden in the fullness. As well there are just few tiny pin-prick sized holes in the organdy but again these are so minor as to be hardly mentionable. I do so to be absolutely correct in my description. These tiny flaws are part of the history of this beautiful vintage item.

Hand washed, dried in French sunshine and ironed with a very light touch of organic rice starch

this petticoat is fresh, crisp and beautiful.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


All brides look for the most beautiful lingerie for wearing under their wedding dress

and this fine French petticoat will truly be something extra special for that most special day.
