My seamstress kept promising me she’d order a petticoat for me and still never has! I’d really like to wear one under my dress – it’s a ballerina length a-line dress with a skirt of tulle and lace so I think a petticoat would make it look that much more fab! My question about petticoats are:
1. and most importantly, where should I buy one? I’ve seen a few on Etsy and Amazon. ANywhere else I should try?
and 2. when the measurement on a petticoat says 30″ (for example), does it actually go down from waist to feet the full 30″ or should I count on it riding up a little and subtract a little from that measurement? Like maybe to about 27″?
I need a petticoat that lies perfectly flat at the top, from about the waist to the hip (as if my dress had a drop waist) because the fitted bodice has a v-shape that extends to just above my hip bone. If anyone has one or knows someone trying to sell one, please send them my way!!
