Vintage Lingerie..PETTICOATS GALORE!

"A woman who goes to bed with a man ought to lay aside her modesty with her skirt, and put it on again with her petticoat." [Michel de Montaigne c1560]...

My good friend Connie, recently sent me to PETTIPOND .. a website devoted..well, to petticoats and the people that love them! I was LOST in the fluffy array of nylon, crinoline and such! Pouring over page after page of sheer delight! You can buy petticoats, talk about petticoats, look at pictures about petticoats, just about anything! This site was so much fun! You too should check it out!

Lingerie..Created just for YOU at SewSister!

Megan Chappuis Summerville started designing lingerie after working as an alterations specialist for an intimate apparel shop. While there she performed simple hook and eye take-ins to retrofit bras to have a prosthesis pocket, for post mastectomy. While there she discovered that Ethel Prater was looking to get out of the business and retire. Megan went out to East Texas to meet Prater and knew she had met her calling.
In Megan’s interview she said, “I love making bras, my favorite style is an underwire low cut, being a 32FF I was elated to learn how to make my own size. I rarely keep bras that I create and most are sold to walk in clients that come to my studio for a fitting. Many clients are hard to fit, and have unusual cup and band size, so the item is made for them. I do produce some of my line on mass scale, but it is all done in my studio, I don’t farm out the sewing at this time. I love that everyday is a challenge, and that I am making lingerie for women who just cant get a better fit anywhere else. The biggest challenge is grading patterns. Some of my styles conform to one of the larges size runs made domestically, 28A -52N.”

In 2007, Megan was featured in Fortune’s small business.In 2009 she won the Texas’ Next Top Designer, Sept 2009 Modern Luxury Dallas Magazine. Next month, in October 2009, she is participating in a benefit for the Friends of the Katy Trail in Dallas where LaMode Magazine will be handing out issues that contain an 8 page spread on her work.

Hey Men! Feel left out? Sewsister created a line just for you men as modeled by Limas Sweed who is wearing their newly launched men’s line!

Megan’s line of lingerie is called, Megan Summerville, and can be found at and by appointment 512-922-6843 in Austin, Texas. She states she will even fly out to perform custom fittings for clients at their own expense. Her line features bras, basques, waspies, merry widows, undies, slips, and nighties.
