Discussing a fundamental element of the 1950's wardrobe, with a detailed how-to for a slip to be worn under sheath style dresses.
Mark takes us through the process of how to pattern draft and make a pair of tights or panty hose, and some custom control shorts.
Jennifer discusses the circular flounce chemise, which adds even more fluidity and femininity to the shape and drape of the standard early C20th chemise.
Mark takes an in-depth, technically-detailed look into shapewear garments & how they're constructed to achieve a bodycon look.
Early C20th lingerie evolved to compliment new fashions. Jennifer studies the brassiere as seen in 1921: half corset; half snug fitting, structured tank top.
Anna introduces us to making our own shapewear - allowing you to create retro-inspired pieces especially designed for and to match special outfits!
