Vintage Lingerie Sew Along & Inspiration

1955 French Garter Belt Print - Paris MATCH

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.

Meanwhile, here is some more inspiration:
