I like how nothing is scratchy on it. I have had dresses with petticoats and they don't cover up seams. What advice would you give someone starting this project? You almost can't make a mistake on this one. Very easy. If you can do the Bombshell dress course, this is a piece of cake.

What you will need

Q&A with The Sewing Lab

Love this. Definitely a "bombshell must". We used to wear 3 or 4 petticoats at a time. My mother stitched up so many, many yards of net for her two daughters and goodness knows how many miles of bias tape she used. :)
The Sewing Lab answered:
Thanks! Three or four petticoats at a time would really make a fluffy skirt. It was kind of fun wearing it. Bias tape... I thought about that or ribbon but in the end I finished the edge with a serger. Thanks for your comment. Loved the first hand experience point of view!
