C.1865. Quilted petticoats are quite unusual to find due to the amount of work that went into making them and the fact that central heating did not exist, so they were often worn out. This lovely petticoat is in wonderful condition and is made out of white cotton. The bottom half of the skirt had wadding inserted into it and then decorative stitches were used to keep it in place. The stitching was done with an old chain stitch treadle machine which is common for the mid 1860's.
