Lightweight, luxurious fabric...tasteful lace applique...french seams...button closures on the sides...yes ladies and gentlemen, these are the real deal, french knickers from the 1930's....at least, the pattern itself is!

Furthermore, making your own piece allows you to make alterations to the original. Now, before everyone starts screaming "Treason!" allow me to elaborate. For many vintage lingerie [and clothing!] lovers, size and fit are a major issue, especially with the older pieces, such as those from the Victorian and Edwardian eras. We simply do not shape our bodies in the same way as was done back then, which leads to a great deal of heartache when we find a beautiful piece who's measurements could never approach our own. Therefore, being able to alter the old patterns to make a vintage looking piece, true to the original in every way except size, is a great blessing.
