Hey guys I'm looking for a pattern that shows how to make a reeeeally puffy petticoat, and I'd also love to know if it's a half circle skirt or a circle skirt... I need a dress that looks exactly the same as this one for halloween Smiley

Would this Vintage Vogue pattern work? http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v2962-products-8314.php?page_id=850

That is most definitely a circle skirt!  If not a circle and a half.

That girl (Sugardale) has a petticoat tutorial up already, but it's not as puffy.


I remember reading somewhere on her blog (can't find it now) that the giant petticoat for this dress was 4 or 5 of those on the one waistband, so that's a lot of work and a lot of fabric! I think for the petticoat that size it would be better to get one of those huge, cheap wedding petticoats off eBay and cut the bottom off.

As for the dress, this tutorial could be modified maybe? Just add a shorter circle skirt and make halter straps.


This one has a similar shape, just make the midriff wider and to your waist measurement (i.e. take out the shirring and add a zip).


There are also plenty of retro inspired dresses from the Vogue pattern company.

Hey, if you find that you want to go the premade petticoat way, I've got a ton of petticoats from a wedding shop that moved and left a bunch of stock.  Pm me if interested and I'll send you some.
