December: Corsets and Crinolines

With the world of vintage branching out and more and more sellers starting their own websites, we loved the idea of showing off some of our members beautiful websites and equally gorgeous stock. Each month we're going to dedicate a post showcasing some of our favorite finds from these sites. We're also going to feature a seller from each venue - Website, Auction Site and Online Mall Site - on the sidebar for the month.

We have so many wonderful sellers as part of the Vintage Fashion Guild and you can visit all of their sites here.

This month we're featuring longtime VFG member Corsets and Crinolines. Collectible vintage clothing from bustles, boots and bodices to petticoats and photographs. Corsets and Crinolines brings you the best hand picked vintage clothing you can find!

First up is this irresistibly adorable 50's poodle cardigan sweater. A very rare and collectible 1950's heavy weight homemade knitted wool cardigan with TWO black POODLES on it! The poodle was THE dog of the 50's so why not pair up one of your rock 'n roll circle skirts with this quintessential original 1950's garment?

And of course with a website titled Corsets and Crinolines, there are a ton of those to go around!

Like these lovely 50's new old stock Belgian floral pattern corsets. These tearose pink floral brocade boned corsets by Thowe come in a variety of sizes. These are New-Old shop stock and come with their original corset laces. The corsets fasten with hooks at the left side.

For the crinoline part - there's this very full orange number with the edges bound in stiff cotton twill bias tape. The bottom layer is made from orange nylon chiffon to stop your stockings from getting scratched up. The orange cotton hip yoke and has elasticated waist and the original cardboard paper tag sewn inside.

Also take a peek at our featured eBay seller Vintage Clothes-Line and our featured online Mall seller, Fuzzylizzie Vintage at Babylon Mall, in addition to Corsets and Cinolines. All three will be featured on the sidebar for the entire month of December.
