Vintage Sewing eBay Roundup – Vintage Unmentionables Edition

by Andrea

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and it’s got me browsing some patterns for vintage-style underthings on eBay – let’s have a look!

First up, this Vintage 40s 50s 2-Pc Pajamas Lingerie Sewing Pattern



OK, so this is more pajamas than unmentionables, but it was too cute not to share – I especially love the view with the tied top!

Next, we have this Vtg 1944 Butterick Lingerie Pattern



Totally the classic slip pattern.  Make this up in something silky with pretty lace, and you have an undergarment that is both practical and pretty!

Here, we have this Vintage uncut 1950s Full crinoline Petticoat Lingerie Pattern



Need something to go under your Betty Draper style dress for your Valentine’s dinner?  Here’s the perfect pattern to make your own petticoat!

Then, we have this 40s Knitting PATTERN Lingerie



OK, so this is some knitting I snuck in here again, not sewing.  However, seeing this makes me wish I was a better knitter, as it’s such a pretty little undergarment set, and would actually be warm, too!  As a Canadian I can definitely appreciate undergarments that are both pretty and warm!

Finally, we have this Vintage 1968 SEWING PATTERN McCall's #9176



Sewing my own bra is something that I’ve always wanted to do, and this pattern has pieces for every bit of underwear you could possibly want to sew!  I love how super 60’s the prints are that they did these up in on the pattern envelope.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

    This reminds me of when I was in Junior High School (which is now known as Middle School) in 1970, I made a full slip in Home Ec class. No one would even think to wear a full slip these days, let alone make it themselves. I love the tied pajama too; although, I couldn’t imagine it would be comfortable to sleep, but certainly cute to walk around in! Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Janice! We still call it Junior High School up here in Canada 🙂 Yes, I agree the tied pajama is definitely more for looks than sleeping, but it sure is a cute look!

    Love the tied top pajamas, too. I just love the old graphics on patterns as well. I’m always amazed at how women and girls could sew such complex clothing back then. My MIL made her own clothes (and wedding dress) and her mother as well sewed for the family.
