Woman Makes Her Own Vintage Lingerie And It’s Spectacular
Christine H McConnell decided to make her own vintage lingerie and the result is spectacular, chic and sexy in every way imaginable. Christine is a very talented artist, photographer and baker and this is not her first shot at creating vintage clothing. Victoria’s Secret, can you spot the competition?
“So I make and wear a lot of vintage style clothes, but that comes with a problem… The undergarments. Those type of clothes look best with Structured underwear that;s not really made inexpensively today. So when I realized the lycra was shot on a 1950’s girdle I bought on e-bay, I decided to try an experiment and make one myself :D”, she wrote on her Facebook page.
Christine was kind enough to explain the entire process and necessary materials required to create such incredible vintage lingerie, but we still don’t feel quite up to the task just yet.
“It took two days and here it is :)) It’s a full bodied girdle with boning, hook and eye clasps, an underwire bra and it’s closed with a zipper. I used some old curtains I found at a thrift store for the center piece, straps and tabs. I actually was able to find garter grips (The things that link on to your nylons) at Bed Bath and Beyond! They sell them for securing bed sheets :P”
“Everything was made from scratch and a lot of hand sewing was required for the design. I decided to photograph it by replicating this awesome old pinup art! This particular image has been a favorite for years and it turns out holding that pose was a lot harder than I thought it would be :D”
