Followers on Facebook will know I found a large satin quilt on eBay, with the intent to turn it into a quilted petticoat, which I gleefully started as soon as it arrived, abandoning all other projects remorselessly!

|I ended up slightly goring the panels, to reduce some of the bulk and weight at the waist. It certainly gives a lot of volume, and looks lovely.|
After freezing my stockings off in the wet weather in CW, I wish I'd finished the quilted petticoat and taken it! It's still not quite done (close, though), but I have an itch to finally put together the little pierrot jacket that's been on my list forever, which will go perfectly with the petticoat...just in time for Summer, right? Ha!
