Weldons Practical Needlework Magazines

Walter Weldon born 1832 was an English chemist, journalist, and fashion publisher.

Walter Weldon also founded Weldon's Fashion Journal, Weldon's Patterns, and Weldon's Household Encyclopaedia.

His publications in the late 1800s were through Weldon & Company, a pattern company who produced hundreds of patterns and projects for numerous types of Victorian needlework. Around 1888, the company began to publish a series of books entitled Weldon’s Practical Needlework, each volume consisting of the various newsletters (one year of publications) bound together with a cloth cover and costing 2 shilling/6 pence.

Vintage Lingerie Movie Star. Bring Out Your Inner Diva!

Vintage Lingerie Movie Star. Bring Out Your Inner Diva!
movie star lingerie, vintage nightgowns, vintage lingerie, ebay shopping, eBay vintage lingerie, sweet cherry vintage,

Fashioned and Created by Movie Star lingerie. The color is a dazzling orchid, in a lilac shade, which is a mix of pink and lavender. Just stunning. Material is 2 layer nylon, of sheer nylon chiffon over silky soft Movie Star nylon.

Bringing you yet another classic lingerie label by Movie Star. Just as the name itself suggests, the brand has a legacy of Hollywood glamor and the creations are just as real as it gets!

The company that became Movie Star was first started as the Industrial Undergarment Corp in 1935 in New York City's Garment District. With a name like that we can only imagine the austere styles they originally manufactured. In the early 1940s the company revamped their image and began producing stylish sweater girl bras and elegant slips. They changed their name to Stardust Lingerie and incorporated the Movie Star label into their intimates. In 2006 Frederick's of Hollywood merged with Movie Star and the headquarters was moved to New York. In 2008 the company changed its name to Frederick's of Hollywood Group Inc. (courtesy of Wikipedia and Dollhouse Bettie).

You can find this gown along with many other vintage lingerie nightgowns on eBay.
