Quick guide to all of my petticoats! My Classical Puppets is a bit deflated, though. The handmade one has about fifteen layers of tulle/stiff netting, so it would be terrible to sew, but it’s my absolute favorite.

I have a Malco Modes 582 on in this picture - one popped up on eBay and went for a good price, so I grabbed it! It’s so useful, and holds up the heavy velveteen dress really well (I’d spent two hours on a train before this photo, and it’s still fantastic).
Hey Auntie Jilli, I always admired how full your skirts were and I was wondering what petticoat(s) you wear?
For today’s adventure, I was wearing a smallish hoop skirt. Floofy skirts with no fabric against my legs to overheat me!
For actual petticoats, I tend to wear two at once: the Malco Modes “Melanie” over the “Samantha”. (I did not know Malco Modes renamed all their products with girl’s names. That’s … odd. )
I always check thrift stores for petticoats and crinolines, especially when they start putting the Halloween costumes out! Value Village/Savers usually has a knock-off of the Malco Modes “Samantha” petticoat for under $20.
