Inside Out

vintage french corset ebay
I have a fascination for the insides of vintage clothes. Strange but true. Usually you find that the inside is as gorgeous as the outside. These items I found on ebay are no exception.
This French seller has some of the most amazing stuff - take a look.

I think its the juxtaposition of the fine silks or brocades with the humble linen, rough cottons...or the almost architectural characteristics of the strong lines of stays...and of course the "fait main" stitches. The details (the stories they could tell!) are incredible. I thought I was quirky for liking the insides so much...glad to see I'm not alone!
