This month, the first pieces from the long-awaited Maddy James vintage lounge wear line have been delivered. I was so excited to be among the first to receive the stunning 1940s Emily Kate tap pants set.
A common need among vintage girls is comfortable and beautiful pajamas and clothes that we can wear while we lounge around the house.
At a modern size 18, I'm a little bit out of the current Maddy James size range so I needed an extra wiggle to get the tap pants over my hips but they're very roomy and have a bit of elastic at the back.
These luxurious tap pants are made of machine washable silk polyester and are trimmed in black imported lace. Like original tap pants of the 40s, these feature a high-waited yoke front with a comfortable wide leg.
The white cotton top is a tee-shirt fabric with an original 1940s lace flounce silk screen pattern.
The Emily Kate tap pants set is wonderfully comfortable, with plenty of wiggle room for a restful night's sleep. Read more about Maddy James in my behind-the-scenes post and check out the Maddy James blog and facebook page for updates
