|1930's Crepe knickers|
So anyway, after reading this lesson in daintiness, I thought I would share with you two pieces of the 1930's underwear I have from my own collection, that have been handmade by some genius, with infinitely better sewing skills than my good self (which I have to admit are close to zero!).
I found these two pieces quite by chance whilst opportunity shopping and I absolutely adore both of them! The knickers have the most divine embroidered circles on the sides and are made of the softest crepe with satin binding. The chemise is likewise hand embroidered and is in the softest shade of green I have ever seen, similarly made of crepe and satin bound. Isn't the black embroidery on the chemise just beautiful?
I would never part with either of these items - they will not be up for sale - they are a exquisite part of a bygone era - a time when many women had the time and knowledge to create such stunning creations!
