I just can't talk about the history of 1950s skirts without also discussing the petticoats and crinolines worn under them. The Paper Doll look of the fifties could not be achieved with simple cotton and lace slips. The five yard skirt needed five net petticoats to achieve the Victorian volume that the doll look required.

One of the problems with my sewing is that I sew A LOT, and not all of it looks particularly interesting and dynamic unless I manage to do a whole photoshoot in it, in a picturesque locale (which, luckily, there are lots of in the Wellington region!). Thing is, photoshoots take a lot of time and planning, and a willing photographer (which, unluckily, Mr D is not often). So I do a bit of self-timed photos, and a lot of mannequin photos. Even with good images, some sewing isn’t that…

Today, most repro and vintage inspired swing dresses and skirts don't need petticoats but they help make poodle skirts and swing dresses look authentic to the 1950s. One thin crinoline slip will add enough volume to still be modern, while larger full petticoats will create a more dramatic 1950s rockabilly style. Naturally, it is fun
