1960s Lingerie Sewing Patterns
The first half of the 1960s is part of the Classic Era- which runs from about 1955-1965. This era is still stylish today! In the second half of the 1960's, the political landscape changes. It is a time of change, for change and with those changes a change in fashion bubbles up. Youth culture is in, hemlines rise, and as always undergarments need to reflect what is worn over them. Nylon is the fabric of choice and comes in an array of colors. Stretch fabrics, like spandex, are more common and give lingerie less rigidity like these girl's mothers and grandmothers wore in the 1940s. Panties are also becoming more and more popular. Briefs come up to the waist. Towards the end of the decade, that waist-line will drop and hip huggers will be in style. Nightgowns and peignoir sets are still common. In the 1960's they become a bit brighter and more frilly than their predecessors. Named after the 1956 film, Baby Doll, the baby doll continues on in popularity in the 1960's. It takes on an even more innocent youthful look as manufacturers appeal to youth culture.
