Lacey Whites $16 SWAU Grade: A
LOVE LOVE LOVE these!
It's all in the details! the underwaist is full of them along with the rest of the set. it is trimmed with ribbon and lace.
It comes to her waist and then buttons in the front to her petticoat with two small white buttons.
Her petticoat has growth tucks to lengthenn as she gets bigger. It is also finished with more of the same lace and ribbon trimmings.
Lastly there are four pieces of elastic with clips and buttons attached to the bottom edge of her underwaist. These go under the petticoat and are used to clip and hold up her saggy tights. You put the button on the inside of the tights and then push the thin tights and button through the opening of her clip.

I love this set; however, my fat fingers have a tough tie with the garters...and I am old enough to remember the days before pantyhose..stockings and garter belts!!! The details in this set are great. I reall like it when AG does butons and buttonholes instead of hair and clothes snagging velcro
I love these! Samantha is never seen without them! When I was little and didn't get the purpose I made her wear them as a dress lol. It makes the clothes she is wearing seem much more full, its a great touch.

i have this set as well, it was a christmas gift the year I got Samantha. (I actually got her whole Winter Story collection that year HEHE) Anyway, I LOVE this set! My Sam wears them under her clothers too! (except her nightie) My only concern (at 14) was the accuracy of the elastic of the garters. I lost the thin stocking ages ago (sniff sniff) but I still enjoy this set!

Adding another not-so-canon picture in. I thought I needed these simply to complete my Samantha stuff, but I love them! They make her dresses so fluffy. It just feels like such a delicate art dressing her when you have these. A+

Amazing! A must have of you can find them. They look pretty all on there own, and under Samantha's clothes, they make the skirts fuller.
I don't have the stockings, so I can't comment on those, but the top and skirt look so delicate and pretty trimmed with lace. The garters are an adorable and realistic touch. I like how the bottom buttons into the top, small details like that make this great!
Excuse her bad hair day there.
2nd pic is a little dark, but shows the back of the set, and how they close with velcro.
Utterly adorable. It took me years to find these for a good price on eBay, but I'm so glad I finally did. Sam's wearing them under her Play Dress now, and it really makes it stand out. I love how pink and frilly it is. The buttons are a nice touch! I agree - if you can dig these up for a good price, do so. They're well worth it for Samantha, Nellie, Rebecca, and other young Edwardian ladies.
