When making washable petticoats for her small
daughters, a mother whom I know attaches two skirts to one belt, which in
turn is sewed to a little lace trimmed waist. The lower skirt is made of
white cambric, and the top skirt is of swiss embroidery. This arrangement
saves time in dressing the little ones and their upper and lower
petticoats are always of the same length and set evenly.
