This is such a lovely jumper. It was sewed together so nicely and with great care. The seller was very sweet and a pleasure working with. The teddie did not fit when I received it. However, Melissa took care of it and I did not have to pay for return shipping, which I was happy for. I highly recommend her as she takes great pride in her work and therefore has lovely products! I hope to be back! 💕

After purchasing this brassiere in nude and absolutely falling it love with it, I had to have it in black too. I can't explain how wonderfully comfortable but also aesthetically divine this garment is. The feeling of the silk against your skin is like nothing else. I won't stop until I have this brassiere in all available colours!

About

The story of Evette Dubois and the Boutique

Bonjour Darling! Welcome to my store and the wonderful world of Evette Dubois. For those who love to be transported to another moment in time, a unique magical world filled with glamor, style, fashion, history, design, sewing/dressmaking. This is all communicated through the diary entries of Miss Dubois. Before I write any further let me introduce myself.....My name is Melissa and I live in the beautiful city of Melbourne in Australia. Most would describe my personal style as that of a true 'girly-girl'mostly wearing a mix of modern and vintage but always dress each morning inspired by the classic silhouettes of the past decades. I love the colour pink, strawberry cheesecake, summer, collecting vintage, fashion history, reading literature, sewing and cooking up a storm. I am the author of the fictional character Evette Dubois and I lovingly hand make all of the vintage inspired lingerie and apparel for the Boutique.

The inspiration behind my lingerie boutique and the life of Evette Dubois started some time ago when I was I child. As early as I can remember I have loved fashion and being creative in general. My admiration of fashion came from my wonderful grandmother Patricia. She studied in the field of dressmaking just like the two generations that came before her. My grandmother was fortunate enough to work at high-end boutiques during the 1950's on the prestigious Collins street in Melbourne, Australia. She transported me into her glamorous world of fashion. Growing up she educated me about the fabrics, the cuts and the appreciation of the fine craft of dressmaking and design. Inspired by the nostalgic stylish world my grandmother painted in my mind, I too followed in footsteps of generations of women before me and studied in this field of fashion also.

I have been avidly collecting and selling vintage for over 10 years. During this time I have an array of vintage women's lingerie beginning with 1910 to 1950. Every piece of lingerie tells a story and the fine detail that has gone into the construction of these garments of the past is truly breath taking art form. The fine silk fabrics, the vast variety of trims, lace and embroidery that adorns each piece. I absolutely treasure this collection as each piece tells us a unique story that connects us both socially and historically to a past period of time.

I am so excited for you to take this journey with me as I paint this creative world. Thank you for visiting and lets stay in touch.
