Astoria, New Yor...
As part of the Show Off Your Skivvies challenge, I made french knickers and a lace pajama top, both based on styles from the 40s and 30s respectively. I got both patterns from Vera Venus, and they’re great if you actually read the measurements before you cut. I did not, and therefore it came out a bit small. Luckily I was able to make it work with extra lace. I just love the result! The top is still a bit too tight, but the knickers are perfect.
