This corded petticoat has 16 rows of fine cord sewn into the bottom of the skirt. It has a cotton twill tape draw-string waist. All the seams are felled to eliminate raw fabric edges.. The skirt is gathered into a yoke, and the yoke is gathered into a waistband to decrease bulk. The length of the yoke will vary depending on the overall length of the skirt which will be custom made to your measurements.

The natural color is made of stiff cotton blend fabric.
The mourning/black one is made of 100% cotton broadcloth.

The skirt circumference is approximately 78 inches. When you place your order, please send your waist measurement as well as the desired total length of the skirt so it can be custom fitted to you.


Despite the name, a rope hoop will NOT give you the same look as a regular boned hoop. In the early 1800's skirts were given some body and shape by adding petticoats. Over time fashion demanded larger skirts. To help accommodate that and to cut down on the number of petticoats needed the corded petticoat was developed. It had more body than a regular petticoat and could give a fuller look with less layers. Eventually the shape of the skirts could not longer be supported by any number of petticoats and the boned hoop was introduced. The shape of your skirt is determined by the underpinnings.
