1930s Lingerie Sewing Patterns
1930s fashion sewing patterns started to show a ladylike feminine curve coming back in style as we start to move away from the boyish gamine figure of the 1920s. Round and pointier bust shapes along with natural waist curves are desired. A look of almost no undergarments has to come into play as glamour wear is all about the bias cut dresses in the slinkiest of satins. Undergarments are starting to be sold more and more in a retail setting. Rayons and stretchy rubber bring fine garments to the consumer. Even though the USA is in financial depression, the fashion-conscious wants to escape and looks to Hollywood. Scandalous pre-code movies show young starlets in their underpinnings and are the best resource to see the styles worn back then. Just like in the 1920's silk and rayon chemises are quite popular. Trimmed with lace and feminine details. Manufacturing during the 1930s expands and details become easier to come by and add to ready to wear. The modern idea of separates starts to take shape then as well. The word brassiere is shortened to bra. Bras are convertible with low back options and start to come in A, B, C, or D cup sizes.
