The top of this petticoat is a stretch lycra fabric that measures 7" down to give you a smooth fit over the hips. The 3 tiers double layer organdy fabric cascade down to the floor and are finished with a satin binding at the bottom. The soft polyester lining lays gently against your legs, between you and the petticoat. Hand wash cold, line dry. Please allow 4-6 weeks when ordering. There are no returns on these costume petticoats.
