All in White

Thank you all for your lovely comments on my previous post! :)

Another set almost ready, this one is with a girdle.
My mom did not know English, but she called them 'stepin' and had a lot of them.
While I was working on this, I must think of her. :)





see you later

In één woord: prachtig, Marlies. Ik vind het delicate kant dat je hier gebruikt hebt zo mooi.
Geweldig om weer nieuwe miniatuur lingeriesets van jouw hand te zien :D!
Fijne zondag nog. Groetjes, Ilona

Did not know that they called that step in in English too :) My mother did not losen him completely, stepped in and made him close. I think that's were the name came from.... Later they had zippers.

Happy you like it! :)

Hi Marlies! I just called them a girdle and my mother use to wear them all the time. The Playtex brand was the most popular and were advertised both on t.v. and in ladies magazines. They bring back lots of good memories for me, just because of the innocence of that time, ( the 60's). They were quite heavy to wear,as I recall, but your set actually looks pretty AND comfortable!
I LOVE THEM! :D

Hi Marlies, what wonderful work you are doing.
We also called them stepins. All our Mothers wore them in the 50's when they dressed up for an event, church, a trip to the city. You can imagine how hot it would have been in the summer in Queensland Australia.
I remember wearing a one piece version in the 60's not for slimming purposes but it was simply that one did not go unrestricted.
Such nice details on the blue corset previously posted.
Regards Janine

Marlies, I was just thinking of you this morning and thinking what a shame it was that you were no longer blogging.....to my surprise I see that you are, but your posts don't come up in my reading list!!! I adore the beautiful items you have been making. I hope 2015 is a wonderful year for you and your family....and I shall make sure to come and visit your blog often.
Warmest Regards,

Hi Linda, Yes after a long time, I'm here again! :) There is so much I missed and I missed making miniatures...
Nice of you to think about me, we were in a little house in France past year, there I was thinking of you, your love for France. :)
