Large Peddler doll. Second stage - Petticoat

Here is a photo of my peddler doll wearing her full-length underskirt or petticoat.  The petticoat is actually part of the bottom panel of a real Edwardian petticoat with early machine made Broderie Anglaise lace and rows of tiny pin tucks which were sewn by a treadle sewing machine using tiny, tiny stitches.  So far, these rows of pin tucks are the only machine sewing in the doll's clothing as I want to do everything by hand to make it authentic.
