Sweet Nothings Antique Lace Camisole #1
The Sweet Nothings collection: 'Art lingerie' designed to showcase exquisite antique textiles for the true lingerie connoisseurs. The fragility of the lace used in this garment means that this is a piece to be treasured and treated with care rather than everyday wear. These 19th century leavers laces are made with silk and offer designs that are far more intricate and unique than modern equivalents. Although fragile, their beauty is undeniable. Each piece is absolutely unique and cannot be repeated.
Antique Victorian chantilly lace makes up the body of this camisole, trimmed with a contemporary English leavers lace at the neckline. Plush elastic at the underarm and overbust offers flexibility of fit. Shoulder straps are made of modern leavers lace and can be tied at the centre back for a flirty bow or left hanging loose. Closes with a gold plated hook. Lace placement may vary from photos
