Kirtle & Petticoat Photo Gallery


      Susie Skibo made this kirtle from Drea Leed's pattern as well as me.  It's made from 'goose-turd green' cotton and laces up the side.  The skirt is cartridge pleated into the bodice.  Susie is planning on making a doublet to go with it some day.

      Here is my kirtle. It is calico dyed Spring Green colour and made using Drea Leed's pattern.  The only difference is that I box-pleated it to the bodice rather than gathering it.  You can see how it 'kicks' under the bottom hoop of the farthingale. When worn with a petticoat underneath, this problem is eliminated.  Click here for a comparison.

      This is my petticoat.  It is made using my friend Bess's pattern, and is basically a tube of fabric with a box-pleated hem, pleated to a waistband.  You can see the pleats in the photo on the right.
