Designer's Note:

I have no primary historical reference for this article at this time. I referenced this site in the design of the petticoat. The shoes are custom made by S. B. Juniper.

Modesty Petticoat

This under-petticoat would be worn under the panniers to preserve the wearer's modesty should the skirts and petticoats be blown upwards. Though I doubt this will happen at my (indoor) wedding, it was a fun and quick detail to add to the ensemble. It is pleated into two bands, one in front and one in back, which tie separately. It has machine embroidery in cream thread which will match the forthcoming stays.
