This. Is. Gorgeous.
Absolutely wonderful full slip petticoat from what most likely is the late 1800s, early 1900s. It's in beautiful condition and appears to be made of batiste cotton; the fabric has a very lightweight/sheer quality to it.
Simple lace tatting frames the neckline, shoulders, and waist. The skirt is very full and has a double ruffle hem; the under ruffle is very simple, the top ruffle has a ruching effect, it is very full and gathered. The back of petticoat has a "training" effect. The back closures are eye hooks, of which all are in place.
