Wonderfully graphic and in excellent condition, this wool petticoat has it all: red/black checked wool skirt with wonderfully contrasting black/white check waist with red wool knitted lace trim. It still retains its original button on the waistband. There are 3 other buttonholes on the waistband which suggests that this must have attached to an upper camisole or top of some sort. Machine sewn with hand finishing, it measures 23 inches in length with a 26 inch waist. There are two tucks in the waistband and extra 3 ½ inches of fabric in the hem which suggests that mom made this piece with room for the growth of its young owner.

Please note that the color is a nice red, not an orangey red that might show up on some screens. I've tried to capture its true color, but I am sometimes told that red items appear orange if the resolution of the photo or quality of the screen is not sharp enough.

Children's pieces such as this are getting more elusive to find than ever. This one is in impeccable condition. It looks great on a peg rack or the back of a door, as well as a featured piece at Christmas.
