The Ettie Petticoat didn’t get its name just because it makes for a cute hashtag (#ettiepettie), (although that did help!). It’s named for Ettie Rout: war hero, journalist and author, health campaigner, and the “wickedest woman in Britain”.
Testers help me make sure a pattern is as perfect as possible. They point out any bits that are rough or confusing. They provide feedback on things I can’t decide: would you prefer if the pattern included did X or Y? And, obviously, pattern testers are super helpful to you, the pattern buyer. Testers mean you can see a pattern in a whole range of fabrics, and on a whole range of bodies.
Reasons I love this pattern: First, ruffles! And insertion lace! So pretty and delicate and delicious! You can make it as a historical petticoat, or make it as a modern skirt, it’s fabulous as both.
