Vintage brassiere

Been working on my vintage lingerie skills the past couple of weeks and I'm now developing a 1920s/1930s style brassiere. I'm hand stitching the whole thing and have used an alternative form of point turc to stitch the top cup to the lower cup and shell hemming at the sides. It's taking forever, but it will be so pretty and a one-off. Might make a range to sell- contact me if interested in a commission.

1930s brassiere- should look like this when finished, hopefully!
