Buy the 206 Quilted Prairie Skirt sewing pattern from Folkwear. The most treasured item in an 18th century lady’s wardrobe was an elaborately quilted petticoat worn for both fashion and warmth. Overskirts were raised, divided and pulled aside to display the elegant handwork. In later years, Western pioneers made simpler calico versions of this skirt.

The quilting is concentrated in the lower part of the skirt, while the upper skirt section is lined with fabric alone. The skirt falls in gathers from a narrow waistband with a placketed side opening. It may be cut ankle or calf length. View A uses commercial pre-quilted fabric. Views B and C may be machine or hand quilted. View C has a more elaborate quilting design and no ruffle. Designs are given for a typical floral spray design and grid.

The skirt is very pretty today with a lacy blouse or knitted top for causal day wear or romantic evenings, especially in cooler climes.
