Corded Petticoat - Part 2

This is the corded petticoat made of woven panels from Master Weaver, Louise Richens in its finished state, all starched and ready to wear!

At first, we thought this petticoat was too heavy and bulky, more like a carpet than an item for wearing, but after starching it’s advantages become apparent: the looseness of the weave of the fabric really sucks up the starch, much better than a corded petticoat made of muslin!
