On the Street....Everyday Couture, Sydney
Vintage lingerie is still easily available at most good vintage shops. It is always shocking to me the level of handwork that use to go into ,basically, everyday underwear.
For our lingerie experts
Do you think this is just a design detail or a very elaborate mending job?
When I was in college I learned a lot of couture sewing techniques. If I had ever turned in a garment with the hand-stitching so visible ,as the garment above, I would had gotten an F!
However, the fact that you can see the hand-stitching in a garment like this is what makes it so charming and romantic.
