1955 Ad for garter belts, available on Etsy
Have you ever wanted to sew your own vintage style lingerie. I have, and now living the 1942 way and not buying new clothes, I have decided to give it a go. Luckily, just in time, the lovely Anna from A Few Threads Loose and Sarah from Ohhh Lulu have teamed up to present a fabulous Ooh la la Pin Up Sew-Along, beginning with Anna's new pattern for this amazing French Pin-up Corset garter belt and continuing with her French Pin-up Bra Corselet.
A proper garter belt , as opposed to the garden variety sex-pot model, gives great tummy support and smooths out the bumps, while holding up your stocking! What more could you ask for?
You can join the sew along at A Few Threads Loose and purchase the pattern in her etsy shop, Mrs. Depew Vintage. But first pop over to A Few Threads Loose for a coupon code for her shop and enter her giveaway to win the patterns for the sew-along! Good luck, I hope you join us.
