1443 Parachute Silk Petticoat - Click for the bigger picture SoldParachute Silk Petticoat - Now for something completely different! We bought this from a lady who discovered it in a box of wartime clothing in her loft. She told us it was made by her mother during WWII utilising silk obtained from an airman's parachute and finished with period net edging around the hem. Definitely home made and a unique reminder from those dark days of "make do and mend". If only it could talk, I'm sure it would have an interesting story to tell.

The front depicts demure images of ladies and servicemen in the dress of the period, but when viewed from the reverse side they become rather more racey! Minor rubbing to transfers but overall remarkable condition. 12cm & 13cm
