The Stella two gore petticoat has front and back gores with 8 darts each which shape from waist to hip. There are three ruffled tiers which are stitched from 4 yards of fabric. Stella's petticoat is now in a new fabric shown in the photos below. The creme and pink striped cotton poplin is lighter, more subtle, sister to the fabric seen above which is no longer available. The petticoat provides soft support to the full skirt of the dress. For the more extreme fullness ubiqutous for the period we recommend the use of two crinolines that can be found at other stores. The Stella dress is sold separately.
