Note from shop owner My grandma has fallen and broken her femur and so I've had to put the shop on hold. She has had surgery and is now recovering in a rehab facility. I think it will be a while before she can get back to her sewing again, but she is determined to do so. Thanks so much for all your support - our customers really keep her going. I'm hoping that she'll be back in her routine by mid-fall. Best, Hilary

I had a handful of slips, different lengths, made and each one is just beautiful with quality construction! I chose colors to contrast the lace and they are gorgeous AND functional! Thank you for your lovely work!

I have ordered a lot of items from this seller and they are always amazing. These panties were no different. They material is so soft and comfortable and the days of the week add a little touch to how cute they are. The colors are fantastic, it is hard to get an idea from seeing them online, they look amazing. I got the hi cut panties this time and they are my favorite cut. Communication with the seller is easy and she is very friendly. I highly recommend this seller.

About

Your grandmother does what???

For longer than I've been alive, my grandmother has been the lingerie lady. Always an accomplished seamstress, she started specializing in the 1960s on nylon panties, slips, nightgowns, etc, etc... I think it started as a hobby, but she was good at it, and people started paying her and suddenly she had regular customers. Throughout my teenage years, I remember her at that sewing machine turning out orders every week. And that was before the internet!

Now she gets a real kick out of knowing her lingerie is being worn in far off places from her Southern US home. She loves the interesting custom orders she sometimes gets. She takes pride in her work.

"What else would I do? I enjoy it."

At 91. she is an inspiration. She wakes up every day eager to get at that sewing machine.

We started this Etsy shop as a trio - my grandmother, my mom, and me.

Mom is the master of our embroidery machine. Her natural talent for detailed work like beading, knitting and cross-stitching gives her the patience and concentration to bring our embroidered pieces alive. She also solves all the technical and mechanical problems on the machines, and is steadily learning the lingerie craft.

As for me, I sadly lack talent in either my mom's or my grandmother's skills, but I bring the lingerie to you in pictures and words and keep things running. It makes me happy to work with them. I live in the North now but this little business keeps me close in spirit to my southern childhood and my childhood home, brimming, as it still is, with bolts upon bolts of colorful nylon.

Thanks for taking the time to read about us.
