A Little Lingerie

Dear Constant Reader,

We’re only just getting to know one another, so you may not be aware that I like to sew. And I have a fondness for historic clothing. You may get to see photographs of some of it from time to time.

Here’s a lovely little piece of lingerie I made some time ago, but only just photographed. Yes, it’s not the best picture in the word, but my bedroom is somewhat dim and one can’t use a flash when shooting in a cheval mirror (or really any mirror — I just wanted you to know I had a cheval mirror in my boudoir).

They’re 1920′s-style tap pants made from an old silk shirt. Cute and thifty!

I have another item or two I might share with you, if you’re lucky!
