Historical underwear - Basic skirt

The last part of my new underwear is a rather basic skirt made from dark grey cotton (unfortunately I had not enough left from the fabric I used for the shirt and unmentionables) and some black lace. I used the Burda Crinoline pattern and shortened the skirt a bit - I don't want it to peak under the actual skirt!

Unlike the shirt and underpants, this basic under skirt is really a necessity. You need quite a bit of fabric to keep the actual skirt tamed while walking or when it is windy. The underskirt really helps with keeping the form you planned your skirt in.

ich nehme mir aber ständig vor, Basics zu nähen. Das zählt doch auch?!

@ Neisi: Klar zählt das! Aber du kannst so gut Kuchen, dass ein "Hurra Brot" komisch klingt. Ich näh viel mehr Basic als Kuchen...
