A lot of the KCI "Indienne" gowns pair white petticoats with the prints. I may have to do the same.
I found from Burnley and Trowbridge, this gorgeous striped satin cotton. It's $14 a yard, otherwise I would have bought enough to make an 18th century petticoat and a late 1790s style dress. I may have to acquire it next time I have a spare $112. It's soft, and gorgeous. There's just something magical about stripes.
The next step for me is to cut and piece the bodice. My aim is to have this done for Saturday, but I doubt it.
