Sylvan ‘Garland’ Tap Pants – SECONDS
Voluminous tap pants in an exquisite eyelash edged lace, reminiscent of romantic 1930s lingerie. Each piece has been individually hand cut for perfect pattern matching, with the delicate scalloped edge at the legline. Plush elastic finishes the waistband, finished with a delicate satin bow and Swarovski crystal at the centre front.
This style is designed to be fitted to the natural waist, with a loose hip fit. It is a pull on style, so if you are in between sizes, we recommend going up a size as the lace in this collection has no stretch. For the best fit, please check your measurements against the size chart located in the tabs below. Please refer to the tabs below for care instructions and fabric content for these tap pants.
Due to the limited nature of the lace used for this garment, this style cannot be restocked. Only 14 pieces were made in total across the seven sizes (8-20). Of those 14 pieces, only 5 turned out as “regular” stock, with the remaining 9 pieces ending up here as “seconds”.
What happened? To cut down on dye and water waste, Karolina piece dyed partially stitched garments (rather than the full length of fabric). During this process some of the ‘Garland’ Tap Pants got snagged. Rather then sending those “imperfect” garments to landfill, we felt it was more sustainable to repair them and offer them at a discount (because we know some clients aren’t bothered by small faults/repairs).
How noticeable are the “imperfections”? They have been repaired so expertly that most of the repairs are nearly invisible and are not noticeable when worn. Because of the loose style of these pants, the fabric does not cling to the body so the repairs get ‘lost’ in the fall of the fabric. Please refer to the product photos to see photos of some of the repairs. The placement and size of the repair is different for each pair of tap pants. Please note: as these tap pants are sold as “seconds” at a heavily reduced rate, all sales are final and returns or exchanges are not possible.

The Sylvan lingerie collection is the second collaboration between independent designers Karolina Laskowska and Vanyanís. Inspired by our love of exquisite materials and passion for minimizing waste from the fashion industry, this collection features a stunning range of ‘deadstock’ bridal lace that we dyed an enchanting shade of green. (Please note: the “in person” colour may appear different to what is displayed on your screen. Every effort has been made to ensure the colour displayed in the product photography is as accurate as possible.) This fifteen piece collection is finished with satin bows, hand sewn Swarovski crystals and gold plated hardware. Each piece of lingerie is expertly crafted entirely by hand, with the lace carefully cut to showcase the beautiful design. We believe in celebrating craftsmanship and working to create special pieces that will be treasured and loved for years.
Made by Karolina in Oslo, Norway.
