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. 

Thank you Doris Petticoats!

I am loving all the petticoat posts.

I LOVE that mustard cardigan. I have a green one just like that (though I did not knit it). Green works better for me as I look too unhealthy when I wear mustard (unfortunate!!!). That petticoat is awesome!

Firstly: your outfit is gorgeous! I just love that cardigan to death... I really need to find/make a mustard colored sweater of some sort. I always covet your's! ;)

The petticoats look really nice--I love some of the colors they offer! Thanks for the review. :)

The petticoats are beautiful. But not the price. I think I'll stick to the crinoline.

You rock....
I wanna be young all over again and be you!

I loved Doris petticoats! I don't use petticoats actually, my skirts are too narrow to wear one underneath but the look is so fluffy and comfortable, I might try it. Have a lovely weekend. xx

CARRIE said...

I will have to remember them. That's a really pretty petticoat-- so fluffy!

adorable style...just fabulous!

Victoria / Justice Pirate said...

you always find the prettiest and coolest petticoats too! I have one that doesn't seem to work with most of my outfits. I've worn it once in the past two years and really should just sell it one day. I love your outfit so much!! Other petticoats I have eventually tore. Do you get a lot of tears in yours?? I don't think I'm too delicate enough. I tend to be too much of a tom boy who loves dressing up.

I really love that sweater! Do you have a pattern for it? Or is there somewhere I can purchase the pattern? Two other people commented regarding your sweater, I hope you do post some guidance on the pattern, soon! : )
