There's nothing like Silk Lingerie!

And I found a few last week. First is a darling, hand stitched Silk Flapper Slip. Straight cut bodice and hip gathers on the side. The scalloped hem is trimmed in seafoam green and all is hand hemstitched in black thread.

And this luscious 1930s side zippered slip is from Yolande and is marked Bra-Vo. It also has that wonderful 1930's Neiman Marcus label..........Hand Stitched with a fabulous criss cross uplift bustline, perfect for those late 30's and early 40's fitted midriff dresses.

Nightgowns..........what is more luxurious than a long silk gown. This one has the 1930's Neiman Marcus label but no makers label. It is also mostly hand stitched and has that bias goddet hemline.

And if you must go synthetic...there is not much better than Endear-Tafredda from Barbizon. Circa 1964, imported nylon lace and embroidery frosts the bodice of a Tafredda side-zippered slip.

Not listed yet....but coming this week to cemetarian on eBay

I love Yolande Lingerie. Each piece is always all hand sewn, and so pretty. Great quality.
