So I have this friend.  She only wears skirts.  Seriously.  I've seen her in pants once.  And in the winter, she gets the biggest kick out of wearing a petticoat (that she made) under her skirts (that she made).  She says it makes her feel pretty and feminine.  Well, I've been wearing skirts more often myself, and when I saw this white circular tablecloth at a garage sale for 50 cents, I thought it looked like it should be a petticoat, and that maybe I should see what this whole petticoat thing is all about. 

It has a zipper and biased tape for the waistband.  The trim was already on the bottom.  As you can see here, it has a band all the way around 5 inches from the bottom.  I love the way it looks, but it's there because it was too long at first.  :-)

I've worn it under a demin skirt (my first sewing project from a pattern that I ever completed).  And it's true!  It makes me feel lovely and feminine, and I just want to walk around in it all day long!  :-)

Good work! I bought a big fluffy white hippie skirt purely for the reason that it resembles a petticoat and I wear it under limp skirts all the time.

Isn't it just major fun to twirl around while wearing a petticoat?  Cheesy (I'm very easily amused.)

I want to make a few petticoats, but I don't have the right fabrics for it. Yours is amazingly thrifty!

I love full skirts and have been wanting to wear more lately, but seeing as I'm always working and have to wear black pants... grr.

Isn't it lovely to feel so damn feminine? Makes me feel like not so much of a klutz to have a slip or petticoat on.

If practice makes perfect, but nobody's perfect, why practice?

Ooh, lovely, petticoats are such fun to wear & I love yours.  The 5-inch flounce is great, it looks like an absolutely intentional touch.
  As well as the feminine side, petticoats also have the added advantage - well, if you like wearing skirts in the winter, like me, and so wear tights underneath so's you don't get cold - of preventing your skirts getting all static-y, and twisting themselves around your legs... not to mention the extra warmth afforded by the extra layer... and isn't it just delightfully girly knowing you have lace under your skirt that noone else can see?

Ok, I'm now going to stop enthusing about petticoats in public... petticoats!
