This is a neat little set. A home made piece from the late 1920's or 1930's it is made from heavy crepe in a rich chocolate brown.
The set consists of knickers, which have an elasticated waist, and a simple slip.
Perfect for the true vintage enthusiast.
Flat hip 21"
Length on the outer 23"
Inner leg 9"
Waist to gusset seam 14"
Flat bust 17.5"
Flat waist 18"
Flat hip 23"
Good and wearable but with some points to note;
- the elastic in the knickers has been replaced with modern elastic
- there is some iron shine over much of the piece, especially on the front bodice - see photos
- 2 small 3mm areas of thinning in the knickers
- 4 small pinhead holes in the slip - I considered darning the holes but the darns would show more than the holes
