Mim (Miriam) - Brocade lingerie case or nightdress case. Home Fires Collection
This design was inspired by Home Fires character Miriam Brindsley or Mim. I was so disappointed when the series was discontinued that I turned to creativity, thinking what each of these lovely ladies would have chosen to keep their underwear in. Mim helps her husband run the village butchers shop in the series. Their son helps them out but against their wishes enlists early in the war and goes ‘missing in action’ causing Miriam even more pain. To add to this she becomes pregnant filling her with more emotion over the child who, has gone and one which is to be.
Miriam was played by Claire Price.
My beautiful unique handmade vintage inspired lingerie cases are designed for you to store your underwear, stockings or tights in a drawer at home or in a hotel drawer when travelling. You could also use this as a nightdress or pyjama case to decorate your bed.
I chose this fabric of 50% Nylon 50% Polyester brocade for this softly padded lingerie/nightdress case as it has a vintage feel: the design on pale silver grey of a wonderful yellow, almost golden Chrysantemum type flower, with stems of a darker grey. Have a look at the close up photo to see the beauty of this fabric; there is wonderful shine to the background color.
I think Claire always had a ray of hope that one day her son would return and see his sister, so I chose the lemon yellow 100% Polyester satin lining to represent that ray of sunshine.
I have edged with a sparkly gold cord, which enhances the shine in the fabric.
This is a stunning lingerie case and needs no further embellishment.
Approx size - 33cm x 25cm (13ins x 10ins)
