This set was loosely based on 1930s undergarments – namely, tap pants and chemise tops.
The top was based on a pattern by Megan Nielsen
The shorts were drafted from an existing pair of pjs. You can see that I had to add some gussets at the hip as I did not stretch the waistband as I was measuring! The addition of lace on these panels hopefully makes them look more deliberate than accidental.
The raw edges were finished with a zigzag stitch, whereas the arms and neck holes were finished with bias tape.
NOTE: I am unsure about the fabric type as it was purchased a long while ago. It wasn’t the best fabric as it lacked drape, creased and frayed easily..
satin?, lace, ribbon
