Yellow Petticoat by Doris Designs

Gorgeous pin up girl, Miss Hero Holliday from New Zealand loves trawling through online stores, opshops and vintage boutiques. Miss Holliday is constantly on the hunt for beautiful dresses, cute prints and quirky jewellery. She she just loves her Doris vintage yellow petticoat (or yellow petti as known in New Zealand) to compliment her 1950s style dress. Miss Holliday is “thrilled that Doris ships worldwide at affordable prices”. She continues to say:

It was a tough decision but I ended up choosing the yellow petticoat as it’s my favourite colour and had previously proved to be a difficult shade to find a petticoat in. It’s a deliciously vivid colour and is wonderful either to match my yellow dresses or for accessorising a pattern that features yellow. Much like the one I’m wearing in these pictures. Each petti also features a matching ribbon at the waist which is a lovely touch!

Here Miss Hero Holliday shows her 1950s dress with and without her Doris yellow petticoat. With such fullness it’s no wonder that wearing a Doris petticoat enhances the beauty of the dress whilst creating a streamlined waistline.Yellow Petticoat 20Yellow Petticoat-8

It’s no wonder that the Doris full underskirt is so desirable. There’s no need for a hoop or a scratchy net underskirt with this beauty. The super softness of our pettis are perfect for sensitive skin and offer sheer comfort.
