Aunt March's Petticoat

front 

So in the play  Aunt March hands the family money some in the form of cash and some in the form of a check.  The check she keeps in her purse the cash she keeps in a secret pocket on her petticoat.
So that means on stage the skirt has to be hiked to reveal the pocket as she hands her family the hidden money.    pocket to hid money inI sewed a French wire ribbon rose to the pocket in the hopes that will make it easier to find the pocket while on stage fumbling with skirt, cane, wrist bag and pocket. Two entire bolts of double sided satin ribbon were used for this.   That may not seem like much if you buy your ribbon at craft stores but this was ribbon that my grandmother gave me from her flower shop.  Each of those bolts have between 30 and 50 yards of ribbon on them.  So that is saying a lot to use that much.
Since Aunt March is supposed to be a little over the top.  This is the petticoat that is a little over the top the others will be more simplistic as fitting their characters.  This took me two days to make.  My daughter who is modeling for me is wearing pink pants under the petticoat.  But during the play there will be white pantaloons on the her and it wouldn’t look so odd.  When she holds out the dress like this to show how full it is.  Reminds me of the dresses I saw in Mexico when we went on trip a while back.
