Maybe ladies in the Golden Era didn't pee?
I think so. In the Lane Bryant catalogs I have, they are called "step-ins". Lauren sent me a copy of one that she has and it look fairly open between the legs. My guess is that one would just pull the crotch to the side to use the toilet. The last time I was at the fabric store, I looked at a couple modern teddy patterns that are cut much slimmer and they all had snaps. I plan on making one as a hot weather undergarment. It will act like a slip through the torso, but won't add an extra layer all down the leg.
Yeah, $7 for a grouping like that is a bit high. In my past experience small lots have often been cheaper per pattern than larger ones. Perhaps its because a lot of the patterns in this group are late 30s.
I tend to price my bids for lots by the pattern. I try not to go over $4-5 per pattern in small lots $2-3 for large lots.
got outbid. Super cute 40s housedress - not polkadots, but a little star pattern.
I have a set of these and they are actually very comfortable. I admit I bought them on the larger side so they would be loose when the weather is warm.
They tended to have small flat buttons, and the crotch is usually quite loose so it's not uncomfortable when you sit down!
KittyT-That dress is adorable. I use that word too much.
I wasn't even able to bid on this. It went way out of my price range right away.
I totally admit to using this method I mean, what?
Way easier than pulling undies to the side when wearing a girdle, which quite a few of us here do!
Forget the last lot I posted.
This one went for $90! AND all the envelopes have been cut apart and adhered to manila envelopes!
I fear I may be getting priced out of vintage patterns.
Strange thing is, Ive owned two of the pattern in this mediocre bunch, *sigh*
much sympathy for you LD
Cheers for clarifying that for me, Lady Day! This thread is wonderful, there is so much to learn!
This one ended fairly early in the morning (I think 4 am or so) so that is what prolly contributed to the lack of buying power. But still.
I feel bad for the seller.
That cute little shorts pattern is worth more than $12.00 on it's own.
yeah it is, I paid more for it atleast lol
Obscene pattern price of the day.
Alrighty, I may not be a sewer but good grief... $125 for a pattern?! I'm still a little faint at the idea of spending that much on a whole dress!
Wow! For a cotton dress!
Wow, that's insane! It may be because it's a larger size.
That's a REALLY cute dress, but I wouldn't buy it at half or even quarter of the price.
too small :-(
