U is for..............

.......... UNDIES!! Very Victorian Undies in this case. My goodness, girls, just look at that waist! I was going to do Unicorn for this week's letter, but couldn't find an antique or vintage image I liked. Started unpacking the stuff I brought back from France, and there they were, a few pieces of gorgeous antique French underwear (bustiers). That settled it, lol. Undies it was -








Just thinking about that corset makes me shudder with horror. For the embellies I picked the subtle pinky peach/flesh colours of vintage corsets.

Have a wonderful day wherever you are, toodlepip xxx

  14. I am so glad we dont have to go to those extremes anymore. Grippy knickers are bad enough! Gorgeous tag though. Love all the peach trims.
