Petticoat Junction

If you have been following my adventures in costume making, you will recall that I am making a poodle skirt for my daughter's Halloween regalia. In order for the skirt to stand out in all its glory, it is necessary to wear a crinoline underneath. Since we had no underpinning such as this at our immediate disposal, I had to construct one from scratch. The result is shown above. I am happy to report I only let one expletive "slip" during the process. Let's hope I can keep it as chaste when I begin work on the actual skirt. For that update, please visit me next Saturday.

For a peek at all things pink both unmentionable and otherwise, twirl over to the blog of our delightful hostess Beverly. You'll be glad you did. Happy Day!

That must have been difficult to sew. I sympathize. Too sweet, though. Happy Pink Saturday!

Cute crinny! Holly and I actually each have our own crinny slips. They are vintage and really poof your skirts out good! A basic necessity I would think!

This is really going to be a wonderful costume. I, alas, must admit to having worn poodle skirts and saddle shoes. We use to starch the crinolines with sugar water. It's amazing we weren't attacked by bees or ants. Have a wonderful Pink Saturday.

Hi, good job. I know I have said a few colorful words when I sewed through my finger a couple of years ago! Hahaha...anyhow, I wish you the best of luck while sewing!
