All sorts of things have been bouncing through my head.
Sorting some trains of thoughts:
A long time ago I came across a really neat petticoat tutorial for Alice Lon’s petticoats on Petticoat Pond.
I’m a visual person so I went hunting for more information and I came across this Craftsters thread.
Alas all the links to images were broken.
After much hunting I found them scattered through out pintrest.
To save my sanity I’m re-posting them together here.
I did not create these images someone on Craftster did. If you are the creator and would like me to talk these down please let me know.
