Introducing the New Shop and 30's 40's Style Satin Lingerie

I opened a new shop on Etsy!!!!!! and now I'm slowly moving all the apparel to my new store. So if you don't find dungarees,overalls,slacks and other goodies in my Coco'sRetroCloset shop, take a look at my new shop RetroSpectiveFashion .

I had only one sale in the new shop for now but Wow what a sale! Or more specifically, to whom. 
This customer is an artist, specifically, a sculptor whose works can be found in museums all over the world. My trousers will go on a sculpture in a museum for a permanent exhibit about American women in the 1940's. 
His art is amassing! Hopefully I will see the finished sculpture.


Now, I would like to show you just finished project, actually a custom order. 
30's 40's style lingerie made with vintage (1930's?) satin fabric. It was a wedding dress ripped in pieces. I have to tell that I don't like to work with slippery fabrics but this vintage satin was gorgeous, so heavy and shiny. But anyway, I wouldn't work with it anymore. With new fabric...maybe but not with used fabric. 
This is the result.

The Rose Garden Lingerie

I can't believe I forget to present you one of my best selling lingerie sets?!!!!! Well, autumn and holidays were pretty hectic for me and January also.  

I still have some backlogs from November. It is custom order from Canada and the buyer sent their own vintage satin fabric for authentic lingerie. Package with fabric appeared just last week.
But more about that in one of the following posts.

Well, here it is!!
