301. Making Over a Heatherbloom Petticoat



When you make over a
heatherbloom petticoat, do not cut it off at the top and place the drawing

string in again, and do not plait it to fit the band. Instead, place a

band around the waist of the person being fitted, pin the petticoat to the

band, then make large darts at each seam and cut off that superfluous

material that otherwise would need to be put into gathers. It does not

destroy the shape and permits the petticoat to lie smoothly over the hips.
