History Space: Colonial Petticoat Sewing Session
Does your 18th century petticoat have a drawstring? Are you confused by sewing directions that instruct you to flat fell a seam? Learn how to hand sew a period-correct 18th century petticoat from experienced staff members at the Rhode Island and Newport Historical Societies. This class includes an introduction to the stitches needed to construct this basic garment. Participants will leave with a partially completed petticoat and the knowledge needed to finish the project. Space is limited to ten participants; registration required. Previous sewing experience is helpful, but not necessary. $55 registration fee includes a petticoat kit and thread.
