1930s Vintage Pink Silk Embroidered Tap Set • Bridal Cami Set
Absolutely stunning vintage 20s two piece tap set, comprising of a hand embroidered warm pink silk camisole vest top with tea lace edging and straps and a pair or elasticated french knickers with deep lace edging and hand embroidered flower details.
These were made for a bride, as a gift for her wedding but they have never been worn and were stored until now in the same box. There are a few minor marks from storage where the colour from the orange embroidered flowers has impregnated the silk in places and the lace has age spotting too, personally I think that all adds to its story and charm. There are also very faint greyish dusty marks from storage - see images.

Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they usually are at least 2 sizes smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing

If they're likely to have attracted a moth then they go straight in the freezer for a few days to kill eggs, this is especially so with fur.
