HÉLOÏSE in Brown/Burgundy Tartan is an 18th-Century Petticoat made in the most traditional way. This historical garment in wool is made of 2 panels of tartan pleated according to the 18th-century way. The whole span of the skirt is 3 meters wide. The hem hits the ankles.

Size:

HÉLOÏSE, a 18th-century petticoat is made out 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 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 brings volume to the hips and emphasizes the waist.
A bum pad is available in the shop, here.

WASHING

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.

DRYING

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.
