What Is a Crinoline Petticoat?
- A crinoline petticoat, also known simply as a crinoline or petticoat, is a women's fashion accessory that has been around since the 1800s. Still worn in the modern era, the crinoline adds fullness to skirts and dresses without the aid of underframing or boning. Mostly seen in the bridal and formal market, the crinoline is also used in costuming, especially square dance, can-can and national dress.
- The crinoline made its appearance in England during the reign of Queen Victoria, and was composed of linen and horsehair. For the fashions of the day, several could be worn at once (some ladies wore up to seven). The next generation evolved to wearing stiff circular hoop frames underneath their skirts; these were lighter contraptions that sometimes had wheeled casters for mobility, but allowed more leg movement.
- The modern era saw the crinoline come back during the 1950s. This time, the crinoline was worn under poodle skirts and other circle-based skirts. However, this hyper-feminine trapping faded out of view during the rise of feminism, and is now relegated to bridal and prom dressing.
- A crinoline can come in many different lengths, ranging from mid-thigh to the ankle. Some crinolines have a fabric skirt section at the top, with tulle comprising the rest of the length. Crinolines also vary in rigidity; a crinoline with more fabric gathered into the sections will give more fullness than one with less. Some models also have multiple layers of tulle.
- Crinolines are used in countries that adopt a more Western European fashion aesthetic. Historically, they have been present in the wardrobes of England, France, Spain, the United States and Australia. Cultures that favor a slimmer or more bare silhouette often skip using the crinoline altogether. Some of the national dress of Latin America uses the crinoline.
- Since crinolines are now seen as specialty wear, they can be very hard to find. Some large department stores carry them for children, but ladies' sizes are often sold only in formal boutiques. To buy a crinoline, shop around online; while a bridal shop may charge over $100 for a long petticoat, Internet stores often ask for half that rate. Thrift shops are also promising places for gently used crinolines.
- The crinoline is no longer just an undergarment. Today they have become part of youth fashion. Popular boutiques like Hot Topic regularly stock crinolines that can be worn alone or under a skirt. Sold in hot colors, these garments are meant to be seen, not hidden. Fashion designers have also brought back the 1950s flared-skirt as a hot design, with many brands creating party dresses displayed with the crisp underpinnings.
Types of Crinolines:
- Throughout history, the shape of women's clothing has been in a state of constant change. Every time fashion shifts, undergarments have to shift to keep up. Were this not the case, women everywhere would be wearing a corset and hoop skirt under their T-shirts and jeans. In the mid- to late-1800s, the correct undergarments were just as important as the clothes that went over them. A large part of 19th century fashion was shaped by various forms of the crinoline.
- Horsehair crinolineIn 1837, Queen Victoria ascended the throne of England and overnight, fashion began to take its cue from the new queen. The new dress style was a low-waisted angular garment with voluminous skirts that required several layers of petticoats. These layers could be hot and unhygienic, so designers set to work creating new supports for these skirts out of metal, whalebone and stiffened petticoats. The most popular of these new petticoats was a new fabric, crinoline, made from a combination of linen and horsehair.
- Even a stiff fabric like crinoline was no match for the heavier skirts of the late 1850s, and the added weight of numerous petticoats continued to be a problem. Enter the cage crinoline. Patented by American W.S. Thomson in 1858, the cage crinoline was comprised of a series of flexible steel hoops with no covering fabric. The hoops were held together by cloth tap and graduated from smaller to larger, starting at the waist creating the bell shape we associate with the fashion of that time. This new design was much lighter, but it was sturdy enough to support the heavy gowns. Although the cage crinoline was not made of crinoline fabric, the term "crinoline" became synonymous with any garment used to support a large skirt.
- By 1860, skirt width had maxed out and the large bell-shaped skirts started to go out of fashion. As the skirts changed, so did the crinoline underneath. The new style became what is known as a crinolette, which was reminiscent of the Polonais popular in the late 18th century. The crinolette still attached at a woman's waist, but the front and sides flattened out, leaving the dome shape only in the back. This style was popular from 1867 to the mid-1870s.
- In the mid 1870s, the skirt portion of the crinoline fell away and the bustle was born. Like the original crinoline, the bustle was also stiffened with horsehair and added support to the back side of a woman's dress, highlighting her posterior region. Bustles came is several shapes and styles and, like the crinolettes, most had lacing to tie around the waist or attach a lighter weight petticoat.
- After the Victorian era, crinolines fell off the fashion map until their revival in the 1940s and 50s
- These crinolines were much shorter and were used to add volume to knee-length skirts popular at the time. Unlike their predecessors, these crinolines did not employ the use of metal bands and were made entirely of fabric
- Today, crinolines are mostly seen in formal wear like wedding gowns. Like the crinolines of the 1940s and 50s, these skirts are are usually constructed of fabric only, but unlike crinolines of the past, the fabric is usually synthetic
How to Sew a Crinoline Petticoat:
Measuring and Calculating Yardage:
- Use your measuring tape to measure your waist
- Multiply your waist measurement by 2
- Divide the measurement gotten in step 2 by the number 13
- This final number determines how many yards of tulle netting you need. For example, if a waist measurement is 36, doubled it would be 72, and divided by 13 it would be just over 5 1/2 yards of fabric per petticoat
Creating the Petticoat:
- Use your scissors to cut the bias tape 2 inches larger than your full waist measurement
- Use sewing pins, and begin pinning the tulle to the bias tape approximately 1 inch from the edge of the tape
- Pleat the fabric. The more smaller pleats there are, the fluffier the petticoat will be
- Use your sewing machine or needle and thread to stitch the netting to the bias tape. Line up the edges of the netting on either side of the skirt. Sew them together until you reach the bias tape
- Sew a small hem on the bias tape, so that no raw edges show. Attach the hooks and eyes to the bias tape, ensuring they are positioned for a good fit before permanently attaching them

- Other Thoughts: I bought this white petticoat to go under my Alice in Wonderland Halloween costume. The seller shipped it fast and it is just what I needed. Full and flirty. A little more expensive that most petticoats but it has more volume and layers than those I've seen in stores.

- Other Thoughts: I purchased this crinoline petticoat for my wedding. I had a very heavy dress with scratchy tulle on the underside, and I wanted to keep it away from the skin on my legs. I've had issues with things like tulle irritating my skin, and I didn't want to take any chances on my wedding day. <br/>The white petticoat did exactly what I needed it to. It kept the tulle away from my legs. As an added bonus, it helped keep me nice and cool, since air could circulate under my dress more easily.
