Could not have asked for a better experience! My petticoat it's exactly what I asked for, and SO much more! Lori was fantastic to work with on my custom requests, and I'm going to be thrilled to wear it! Thank you!

Absolutely perfect! Fluffy and sturdy and lightweight. I have an all-black wardrobe so the little pop of color is whimsical and fun ... and it goes with everything. Thank you so much!
Quirky, colorful, spirited and fun!
I was born right smack in the suburbs of North Texas and for as long as I can remember, I have had an ongoing love affair with all things vintage and all things fashion. I had always been drawn to the fashions of the Mid 20th Century, in particular the 'New Look' that was popular in the 1950s. I was especially fascinated by the tulle petticoats that were en vogue during that time, and I used to always fantasize about living in the fifties and being able to wear a beautiful, frilly petticoat everyday!
I love and am inspired by: vintage fashion and lingerie of the 1950s, Old Hollywood, fairies and fantasy stories, Steampunk, saloon girls and showgirls of the 1800s, Tim Burton, nature, Carol Brent, old department stores, haute couture, NYC, Paris, Burlesque, the 1980s, and oh so much more! Inspiration is always around me everywhere I go!
Even though I always have one foot in the past, I am very up to date, and love to keep on trend with the latest styles. You cannot have the past without the present and vice versa.
In addition to creating petticoats for my beloved shop I have a regular full time job that I've been at for 10 years. Some of my hobbies include antiquing and thrifting, drawing, painting, writing, cooking, and traveling. I live with my 2 girls (my kitties Mandy and Trixie) in a beautiful modern townhome filled with Mid Century decor and goodies!
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
Hi I'm Lori designer, maker, curator, head honcho of Petticoats by Lori!
Why buy a petticoat from me you ask? Well, as I stated, petticoats are my passion. Ever since I was a little girl, frilly underpinnings have fascinated me. I grew up with a love of classic fashion and have been collecting vintage clothing and underpinnings for many years. I have been sewing for many years, and have studied fashions from all eras. I have experience in fashion design, fashion modeling, textile design, retail, Old west re-enactment, pin-up modeling, Cosplay, as well as office skills and organization.
I have been fortunate to create petticoats for brides, bridesmaids, flower girls, pin up models, teens' first proms, fashion models, and girls next door.
I am heavily influenced by the 1950s era, but I also draw inspiration from fantasy, mystical, fairies, Japenese street style, the 80s, holidays, steampunk, cosplay, lolita, you name it! I find inspiration in everything I do and everywhere I go.
