6 Vintage lingerie sewing patterns and ‘directoire’ Knickers
If you read my ‘sewing knickers’ post HERE last week you will know that I have recently discovered that you can actually sew your own underwear or ‘lingerie’ (now that sounds so much more elegant, does it not?)
It inspired me to delve into my amazing filing cabinet of vintage patterns and select six beauties to share with you:….
Some of them like this one are really old…
This one is my favourite…
I fancy making this one soon….number 3, lovely for spring?
The girl in the middle is intriguing me, she appears to be wearing a tiny ankle bracelet with a heart charm..can you see it?
View c below…really?
I prefer view D….what do you think of these…I whipped them up in double quick time!
That is the beauty of sewing your own ‘you know what’
They are named “Directoire Knickers” ? its on the pattern! Does anyone know what that name means or where it came from?
One day I will research some of these companies, now wouldn’t that be fascinating?
Have you got the lingerie sewing bug yet?
