Pattern Tour, U20-8263 1929 Garter Belt FREE SHIPPING!

Alexandra Reynolds 1920s 1929 1930's 1936 1940's costume EvaDress Patterns My Personal Dressmaking panties Pattern Tour 1929 Garter Belt U20-8263 

I missed National Pin Up Day (April 22, which was brought to my attention by an Instagram post by @its.goldie_frocks). So my National Pin Up Day contribution days later is this flashback to 2011 at the Raven Café Annual Halloween bash!

I wore the 1936 Underpinnings (Bandeau & Panties) set with this garter belt for a through-the-ages pin-up ensemble, if you will. The result was the pass-off of a late-30’s look. 1929 Garter Belt U20-8263 1929 Garter Belt U20-8263

I sewed 1" wide silk ribbon over the narrower elastic passing through the garter stays to give that vintage look! 1929 Garter Belt U20-8263

4-piece pattern originally from German Beyer's Modenblatt, there are two wide elastics at front with clips to hold the stockings. Shown in silk/cotton sateen and, as worn under the 1936 Evening Underwear from our pattern U30-1517.

Recommended fabrics are: Heavy silk satin, heavy silk crepe, taffeta, silk/cotton blend.

This pattern is for the more advanced sewer as instructions are very basic and un-illustrated.

5/8" seams are given.


Set A fits 14-40 (26" to 34" waist, 35" to 43" hip).

Set B fits 40-48 (34" to 42" waist, 43" to 51" hip).

I was inspired to put this on the Pattern Tour because of this Gil Elvgren re-print in a book I have, Peek-a-View, Vol. 1 by Collectors Press. It was the inspiration for the Pin-Up ensemble I created!
