Gorgeous Lingerie in Hiding

I'm not feeling too great today on a new medication so I'm going to keep this short and sweet. While I've been tucked away on the couch, I've been using my ipad for my usual search for vintage lingerie and sewing patterns.
Here are a few goodies:

This is a to-die for 1920's night gown pattern that I've had my eye on for a while. If only I didn't have too long a to-sew list already...

This nightgown/ lingerie set just makes me swoon, and even manages to make bloomers look sexy in a revealing sheer gauze.

If you're into knitting, then this great reproduction booklet for sweet little underthings is right up your alley.

Thinking of lingerie always has me looking for bras. This time I was looking for the 1920's and I found this great little brocade bra. I love how the brocade is sateen and how the rounded top looks a bit like a sweetheart neckline.

And last but not least whilst we have bras on the mind, Sew Vera Venus is offering a giveaway for her recently developed 1940's bra. This design is pure genious and I can't WAIT until it's available for purchase.

I'm dying to know how she does that lovely little stitched pointed V. Swoon. You can click on this link to leave a comment to enter the giveaway.

Have a happy weekend, mama's off to go mix alcohol with pills. Cheers!


  1. I've been waiting and waiting (it feels like forever, but it's only a few weeks) for the Sew Vera Venus pattern. It looks amazing, doesn't it? Her fabric choices are to die for too - they have me searching the fabric websites desperately for non-icky-synthetic lace.

  2. Oh Anna, you always have an eye for lovelies. All of these patterns are fantastic.

  3. Love the 50's McCall's pattern and the knitting pattern!
