After finishing the chemise, bloomers, and corset, I moved onto the hoops and petticoat. Again, the pattern was fairly simple. I think the most difficult part was just getting used to working with so much fabric. There are literally yards and yards of fabric (about eight if I recall correctly...). Using my vanishing pen to transfer the pattern markings for the hoops was also no picnic, but it turned out quite nicely. I again used the popular Simplicity patterns and highly recommend them.
