Have Cape Will Fly

A small collection of custom lounge wear & lingerie.

There are probably a few questions you’re asking yourself as you view my shop for vintage styled underwear.

Why is this only in one size when this is supposed to be for curvy women of all shapes and sizes you may be asking?

And I’m here to answer you: I’m a costume designer creating one off pieces vintage styled pieces.

For most of my lingerie, much like a genuine vintage piece, there is only 1 in the world of what you are buying! 

Most of the fabric used for my pieces are left over gems from New York theatre shows, that the costume shop couldn’t use to create an entire costume out of and so gifted to its employees, or I was designing a play or opera and had tiny pieces of fabric that were too small for anything but knickers. This means that my customers get vintage styled pieces out of silks and other luxurious fabrics, from the top high-end New York fabric stores, that I would not be able to purchase for the price I am selling my knickers at!

Because these are one-off pieces, and I do believe women in all shapes and sizes deserve fabulous knickers, if there is something you love, I promise to source similar fabric and create a custom pair of knickers for you for only $5 more per pair of knickers.

I create the largest pair of knickers or camisoles I can with the fabric I have- which I am also happy to tailor down for smaller sizes- again at just $5 per pair (all sizes are equal here!)

This also gives me the freedom to create something entirely uniquely decorated in specially sourced trims and laces each and every time and lets me be passionate as a designer about making something precious and beautiful, much like a vintage piece.

And there some classic styles ( see the 'Maliene' directly below) which I carry in many different sizes, each of which a beautiful curvy woman has been a sample model, so I know that they are comfy for all shapes!

 Please contact me for additional sizes and custom pieces.
