At The Vintage Pattern Shop, we offer our customers the opportunity to purchase genuine vintage patterns to craft your own one-of-a-kind pieces. Within our range of lingerie, nightwear and swimwear, we currently offer seven different patterns from the 1930s, including nightgowns, slips, underwear and bathrobes.

You can see from the pattern pictures that nightgowns and bathrobes would be down to the floor, whilst slips were designed to follow the pattern of the dress. Slip patterns are available both with a floor-length design, or just below the knee. Underwear patterns include a brassiere, as well as knickers, which offer full coverage, with a short-like design up to the waist. It was worn loose in a ‘tap pant’ style, fastened with buttons or poppers on the left side. With the popularity of Hollywood films and cinema, women began to appreciate the potential glamour of their undergarments as much as their outerwear.
