a true crinoline petticoat uses crinoline fabric.

the petticoat in your first picture is nothing more than a tiered skirt made of tulle, the yoke is some kind of knit (can't tell from the picture), and there is a double-edged ruffle on the hem.

your second picture isn't showing for me, so i can't comment on that.

The tulle skirt you have in your picture would go together something like this:

Top layer is probably a knit (like a slip material); it is just a long rectangle of fabric with the short ends joined.  Then an elastic casing at the top.

The other layers are just long rectangles with ends joined and gathered onto the layer above.  So each layer is probably at least twice as long as the one above it.

The final layer is usually finished with something like a satin ribbon sewn to the bottom edge.

I hope this helps some.   Smiley  This is how I make the tulle underskirts for costumes.
