Historical Sewing Patterns
This lovely dress combines the corset cover and petticoat into a single garment. Also called an under-dress, or, occasionally combinations, the princess petticoat was introduced in 1877 to eliminate bulk at the waist line. When the outer dress had a train, the underskirt did, too, to keep the expensive fabric of the dress clean, and the under-dress train was often detachable so that it could be washed separately.
Corset cover and Petticoat combined.
Round or square neckline. Detachable Train.
