Anne of Green Gables Fashion Week, I hope you can use a tutorial on making your own petticoat to make any outfit instantly "Victorian" and feminine and romantic. This is a modern petticoat, quick and easy, and it will require you to spend some money and buy a specific fabric, unless you find some soft eyelet curtains with a pretty border to "upcycle."
I did this petticoat in about an hour; that counts in many interruptions, having to wind a new bobbin (make sure you have a full bobbin before you start!) and take care of dinner. This project can be done in close to a half an hour though.
Wash and dry the fabric. Even up the edges of your fabric if it was cut crookedly. You are going to use the entire 2 yards and simply fold it in half, selvage at the top and border at the bottom, and sew one side seam. I did a french seam on mine.
Hold the fabric up to yourself, and fold down the top for the waistband casing. You may want a narrow drawstring, or an elastic waistband. Right now fold down an estimate of how much you will need. Then check the length. You may like it ankle length, or tea length. However you like it, you will need to take enough tucks to get the border up off of the floor to the length you prefer.
Fold down the selvage edge, press, and sew, leaving an opening for inserting the waistband or drawstring. If you want to wear this with a skirt, all the gathers can be a bit bulky; I wear mostly dresses so it does not bother me, but one could make it looser so it sits on the hips instead of the waist.
Rebecca of Baker Lane. I'll bet Anne would have worn a dress like this, if it had been in style at the time!
By the way, if anyone is interested in a timeline of Anne, you can see one here. The link has a lot of ads, I'll warn you. However, it explains Anne's life and times plainly and I will offer it to my readers and spare everyone my lecture about how upsetting it was to see Sullivan Entertainment take Anne out of her time context in the third Anne movie, which story and time ought to have been Rilla's. It makes my blood pressure go up just thinking about the subject!
