The Irresistible Charm of Embroidered Lingerie

LingerieB

In honour of Valentine’s Day, some mid-Twenties illustrations for McCall lingerie patterns including embroidery transfers. The heading reads, “Embroideries That Lend Irresistible Charm to the Intimate Garments.”

From the numbering, I’d say the page dates to circa 1925, when these types of pattern were the only ones to have colour envelopes.

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
