Underbodice and petticoat
Childs Elizabethan Gown Underbodice & Petticoat

This gown was made to fit my 9 year old niece, because girls of that age usually don't have the kind of waist that will hold up a heavy Elizabethan skirt, I decided to attach the skirt to an underbodice. I also decided to add a built in petticoat to the underbodice . The petticoat is made of a soft tule (white) and a much stiffer tule (yellow) . When the cartridge pleated skirt was sewn on over this tule together they added the type of fulness that one might get from a petticoat and bumroll.
