Elegant lingerie is a woman's treasured secret.
Our collection of 1920s and '30s lingerie comes from the time when fashion had dramatically changed for women - especially with regard to undergarments. Women were freed from corsetry and form-fitting silhouettes, and wore clothing that was simple and straight. With the advent of clingy bias-cut gowns in the 1930s, lingerie also adopted this sleek and flattering innovation. Women were attracted to the comfort and luxury of silk or rayon tap pants, bias-cut teddies and slips.
219 Intimacies includes sewing patterns for 4 simple and beautiful lingerie garments. The Camisole has buttons up the front and a drawstring at the waist. The Tap Pants close at the side placket with snaps and are worn low on the waist, fitting smoothly over the hip and flaring from the fullest point. The Teddy is cut on the bias and gives a close fit with comfort. The bias-cut Slip extends the teddy's flattering cut to mid-knee. This slip also makes for an elegant evening gown or sweet sundress!
As with many Folkwear patterns, 219 comes with optional embellishment instructions for making crocheted shoulder straps and top edge beading on the camisole.
The sweet and sexy vintage garments are perfect simple sewing projects - and appropriate for this month of love! They are also on sale until the 14th!
