A stunning example of Vintage ladies underwear, the quality of which is very hard to come by.....it is part of a private collection I purchased in the 1980's from the estate of a very well-to-do Manchester lady who had very obviously had some serious money in her time as I purchased a whole collection of handmade nightwear and underwear some of which I have sold through my shops over the years and some of which I kept hold of, this being just one example.
As the house and outbuildings are currently overflowing with stock it is sadly time to sell our beloved home to look for somewhere with bigger business premises and as I have literally suitcases full of all manner of vintage clothing I have not worn for many years it is maybe time to find them a new home where they can be worn and appreciated so there will be lots more to follow over the next month.....
This is a stunning ladies underslip in the most delicate pale pink silk and I hope my photos do help to show the very intricate work on the bodice which is a wrap over design and with the most delicate needlework in some of the smallest stitching I have ever seen, its a pure work of art in itself......the hem is also stitched with tiny stiches and a pretty design which also follows all around the back.
Measuring it flat it is approx 34" armpit to armpit
approx 29" just under the bust
approx 41 1/4" long
I have worn this once or twice in the past when I was a size 10/12 so this is the kind of size we are talking about here....I would say more a size 10 really to be on the safe side....
In great condition....I have freshly laundered very carefully and cannot see any damage
