Based off of this child’s petticoat pattern in Knitting and Crochet: A Manuel of Household Industry published by the New York Tribune in 1880.

I’m thinking it will be mostly grey with stripes of a different color – not sure if I should use blue, red, or green. I have oh so much grey wool/acrylic blend that Gene’s mom gave me and a good amount of wool in the colors listed above.

My real worry with a wool skirt is that it will felt across the bottom – that is, not the bottom edge of the skirt, but the part between my bottom and the chairs I sit on all day. Any experience with this?
