The 18th-century petticoat

HÉLOÏSE, a 18th-century petticoat consists of two panels of fabric, joined by the sides whose upper end remains open on each side. This opening allows you to easily put on the skirt. Once put on, the petticoat is tied in the following way: you start by tying the ties of the back panel, making a knot on the front; then you adjust the front panel like an apron, with a double turn around the waist. The ties are long enough to make this double turn before attaching them. If you are satisfied with only one turn, feel free to cut them to the length that suits you best.
The two panels of this historical petticoat are pleated in the style of the 18th century. On the front, the pleats start from the central box towards the sides. On the back, the folds start from the sides to converge in the middle of the back.
In the photos, the petticoat is worn over a bum pad that will bring volume to the hips and will emphasize the finesse of the waist.
A bum pad is available in my shop, here:

The 18th-century laced Bodice & Stomacher

Regarding the jacket, it is a very tight bodice, made out of linen, and fully lined with cotton, whose sleeves stop at the elbow. The jacket is tied on the front by means of a lace that goes through eyelets located on both sides of the opening. Once the bodice is placed, you can slip behind the lace the boned stomacher (see options for colors) that will complete the outfit.

Put your garment in a bowl with cold water and one drop of wool washing up liquid. Then rinse properly a couple of times and after rinsing with your hands, lay the garment in a towel, fold it and leave it to dry like this before airing it again.


Tumble driers are not the best for wool products as they tend to shrink them, so it is best to air dry.

Place the garment flat on a clean towel, re-shape it by laying it out in its normal shape and leave to air dry.
