Antique, 1910s, Edwardian, Combinations or Step Ins - Cream Silk and Lace
Please read the condition description carefully.
Beautiful rough or raw silk combination underwear or step ins have tucks in the bodice front and back and above the crotch. The yoke is trimmed with glorious fine cotton lace, threaded through with silk ribbon, which also forms the shoulder straps. The wide legs are also edged with cotton lace. There is no closure, you just step in at the neck and pull them up, so worn loose.
Size - Medium
Bust to 96 cm (38")
Hips to 96 cm (38")
Length 86 cm (34")
Good, but has been repaired. The crotch was shredded so I have reinforced it with cotton interlock and tried to machine it back together, which did work, but it's not pretty. Can't be seen when it's worn, see last photo. I have also replaced the silk ribbon in the straps, actually stitched over the original, and in the drawstring.
