Crinolines – How to Fold, Fluff and Store Net Petticoat Crinolines


What is a crinoline and how do you take care of them? A crinoline, also called a net slip or petticoat, is a woman’s undergarment meant to fluff out a skirt, and give more of a bell shape. It can be made from fabric or net ruffles and is closely associated with the popular 1950’s full circle skirt style. Whether it’s new or vintage these crinolines require some special help to keep them looking bouncy and bright.

Here are some ideas for how to properly fluff and shape your net crinoline, and how to remove wrinkles. Wrinkles will sometimes come out by themselves if you hang the crinoline up for a day or two. This is the first thing you should do with a crinoline. It is especially helpful to fluff and separate the net layers and gently pull the net into shape. Give it a few shakes as well. Note: It’s okay to hang it up for a day or two just to shape it, but crinolines should be stored rolled up in a bag, or else they will lose their puff from being pulled down by their own weight. You can also steam stubborn wrinkles with the steamer setting on your hand iron. Do this by first laying your crinoline over the ironing board so that only one layer of netting is exposed. Lay a pressing cloth over the crinoline. Set your iron on the “delicate” setting, and press the crinoline over the pressing cloth, so the netting does not get scorched. Any remaining wrinkles can be fluffed out by hanging the crinoline up, and gently blasting it with steam from the steamer function on your iron. Just remember — that steam is really hot! Do not to touch the iron to the crinoline, or you will burn the netting. If you are lucky enough to have a real clothing steamer, then hang up the crinoline, and steam the crinoline from the inside, facing out. The netting will instantly puff out. Don’t have access to an iron or steamer? Hang the crinoline in your bathroom. Turn the hot water on in the shower all the way. Close the door to the bathroom and let it steam. Go in every few minutes and smooth the netting out. Or, put it in the dryer on fluff cycle and run it for a few minutes, then hang it up and separate the layers gently, shaping the crinoline as you go. read more
