Corsets and Crinolines - unique vintage clothing


C.1910-1915. During the 1910's, underwear became more simpler as a response to the lavish frillies that characterized the late Victorian and Edwardian era. Underwear was often cut square-like instead of very fitted with darts and seaming, as Victorian and edwardian underwear was. The chemise which was usually made very full and long (coming down mid thigh or almost to the knees), evoloved into the lighter, shorter and simpler camisole. The camisole was still worn under a corset.
However simple in design underwear was made, there was still room for a little feminine touch as shown by the rose crochet lace around the top of the camisole.
Bust measures 36", length is 15 1/2" from top of lace to the bottom.
