- Hand-sewn from quality materials in the USA, the Melonie crinoline petticoat is just what you need to give your favorite skirt or dress the maximum lift and swing you want. Choose from multiple colors, perfect for matching or contrasting, whatever your personal fashion needs. Wear it under a wedding retro 1950s a-line flower girl or junior bridesmaid gown. Works great for Halloween Goth Witch or Disney Princess costumes, Christmas party or Easter Sunday dresses, or with your everyday clothing.
- This petticoat is designed to be tea-length for most wearers. The actual length is adjustable. Make sure to compare your measurements to our sizing chart so you can order the best fit for your frame. If your girl or boy won't fit the child garment, check out the adult Melonie for more sizing options. Fits small children as young as 7 years old, up through petite teens and tweens, and always adds a perfect touch of grace no matter how it's sized.
- Melonie is made with a double layer of stiff polyester net. All five tiers are bound with organza tape. If the stiffness is too itchy, pair it with a softer underskirt or slip. Provides a great hoopless lift without uncomfortable panniers. Wear it under a swinging skirt and pair it with a Victorian jacket and corset for Steampunk cosplay. Add a flower decal or satin ribbon band to make it stand out. Due to the transparent fabric, this garment should not be worn as an overskirt without something under it.
- This petticoat has plenty of room for movement, so it's perfect for all sizes and shapes! We use a high-quality elastic for the waist that provides ample stretch and won't dig into the skin no matter how long it is worn. Our waistband features a unique adjustable design--move the button up or down three spaces for a total of three inches of flexibility. Raise or lower the hem by running the elastic through one of three tiers. No need to grow into this garment, it grows with your little ones!
- All Malco Modes undergarments should be hand-washed and hung to dry. They can be machine-washed on a delicate cycle with Woolite or Forever New, or whichever gentle detergent you prefer. As with hand washing, do not put through a dryer on any cycle.
