Notes
Content: Written on border: "Mar. 1864" Printed on border: "Mrs. Jane Weaver." "This petticoat is made in five widths, sewed together after they are worked; they are narrowed toward the top, which is finished off with an elastic band fastened at the back. The chief part of the work is in plain knitting, and the five widths will make the petticoat two yards and a half round; one yard in length is the usual size, but as this must depend on the height of the wearer, it can easily be made longer or shorter." Includes additional text.
Source note: The Peterson magazine. (Philadelphia : Charles J. Peterson, 1842-1898).
