so for my latest project, i decided i wanted a pettiskirt to go under my circle skirts sometimes. of course i looked at different websites, considering purchasing one, but, heavens to betsey!, they can get pricey. so i did some research on pettiskirt, aka crinoline, tutorials. the most helpful one i found is from this little site: http://sugardale.blogspot.com/2008/08/how-to-make-petticoat.html she does a wonderful job of explaining everything! i followed her tut for doing my layers, using my measurements, then i tweaked it a little by adding a satin piece for the top of mine. to add the satin waist piece i subtracted the length i wanted it to be from the total length i wanted the pettiskirt to be. i also didn't add the ribon pieces over the seams of each layer. so you'll have a better idea, here is how i did my version.
