This is a superb Victorian black silk and lace full length petticoat. The top layer is black silk tulle which has deep embroidered tulle lace or tambour lace at the hem in an Art Nouveau pattern. The lower layer is black silk. The silk for the back and front is different and may have been reworked from other garments. The waist is heavy cotton petershan with hooks, eyes and a press stud placket. The waist measures 30in therefore is suitable for a 29in waist size 10-12. The length is 106cm 42 inches. I have identified the very few areas of damage to the lining in the photos. The petticoat is wearable as an evening skirt. Or could be reworked into a new piece.
