I get asked quite a bit where I get my petticoats. Unfortunately I can never really direct readers to a specific petticoat place, as I buy them at various vintage and antique stores.
But a few weeks ago Doris Petticoats contacted me to try out one of their petticoats, how could I refuse?
Made from 39 yards of soft chiffon nylon, it's one of those super fluffy petticoats that invite swirling and swishing every five minutes. And unlike tulle petticoats, it's not "itchy", a complaint I hear often, these are very soft and lush. I got the 21" length, which works under shorter vintage skirts, not the longer "new look" lengths.
If you like to wear petticoats as skirt (as I did in high school), they have cute satin bows as an added bonus. How darling is that? The only downsize I can see is that there is no plus size option, which I'm sure would be very welcome!
So final review is I'm very happy with the petticoat, it's well made, comfortable, and if I had a daughter, I'd totally get her a matching one, as they carry children's sizes as well. Another feature to note is that the elastic waistband is adjustable, with a hidden button fastening and two buttonholes that can be easily changed. I think these are a great product if you wear shorter full skirts. The one I paired with it is 24" and they worked perfectly together.
