    The petticoats worn in Texas in the 50s were indeed made of netting -- very commonly found in stores now.  They were called Alice Petticoats, were tiered as someone already described and were starched heavily all over.

    To Liz...

    I thought that Folkwear #140 might fill the bill for you but then I looked at the sizes and the smallest is an XSmall which seems to be sized for a very small adult.  If you are a good adapter and drafter you might want to try replicating the Flamenco dress for the child's size.  However, the ruffles, while not difficult, seem to be extremely labor intensive to cut and sew because there are a great many pieces to deal with.   I may try to copy one for my 5 year old granddaughter using pieces from another pattern for the dress part and simplifying the ruffles...after all, at that ages, clothing is quickly outgrown.

    By the way, I read in one of Folkwear's news notes that they hope to publish a pattern for a Guyabera (hope the spelling is correct)  in the near future.  This is the traditional shirt worn by Latin American men and boys.  The pattern will contain a number of sizes.

    Sorry I couldn't help you more, but I thought this was worth a try.

      Thanks for the info, I have emailed folkwear to check if they have a childs pattern, if not (which I expect) I will follow your suggestions.  Liz
