Pink Linen Petticoat Bodies

I made these petticoat bodies during the Summer of 2007 for Pennsic and because I wanted a simple garment that I could wear alone or under my gowns that combined my bodies and a petticoat. It’s made of pink linen and guarded with a red linen. The bodies are boned with reed and made of two inner layers of fustian, an outer layer of the pink linen, and an inner lining of a darker rose linen. The eyelets are hand sewn in red silk over metal jump rings to help make them extra durable. It is all hand finished and there are no visible machine stitches.
