RH 1239 1920s Tango Knickers Combinations

Size : EUR 16.50 incl. VAT

(EUR 14.22 excl. VAT)


Based on an original pattern from the 1920s, this one-piece step-in chemise or “tango knickers” for wear under 1920s fashions or as a cute set of pyjamas. This is the only undergarment you’ll need to make those Jazz Age fashions slip on just right. Make with self-fabric straps or add ribbon and lace.

Reconstructing History patterns are different from other reproduction patterns!

We don’t just photocopy old patterns and sell them to you. We use the original patterns as a basis. Then we grade the pattern in modern sizes, up to 48″ bust and 40″ waist, so they’ll fit far more sizes than the original patterns ever did. And we don’t just stick you with the old vague instructions either. Kass personally goes through each pattern, improving the instructions, modernizing the vocabulary and adding in all those things that the old pattern companies assumed their customers knew. Yet we don’t remove the flavour of the original pattern, so you can truly experience using a vintage pattern without all the trouble of resizing and “translating” it.

All sizes (busts 28″ to 48″) come in the same envelope. Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you’ve come to expect from Reconstructing History.

Fabric Suggestions:
silk satin, rayon, cotton batiste, or any lingerie fabric

lace and ribbon binding (optional)

2.5 yards 54″ wide
