A step-in teddy, created by a professional dressmaker for her own bridal trousseau. It is painstakingly hand sewn, and showcases her fine craftsmanship. White machine made lace is carefully appliquéd to a blue, weighted silk satin, with a central satin panel forming a heart motif. The teddy has a cutaway silhouette, leaving the waistline largely exposed. It fastens with patterned ribbon ties and an enamelled metal zip at the rear.
