|With such shear fabric, I felt my dress form needed to |
model this one. Doesn't leave much to the imagination!
A while back, I decided I really wanted to make a 1940's style slip to wear under my swing dress. Since the dress was unlined (as was common in the 40's), I thought it would be nice to have a slip to go with it. Not long after I decided this, I found the perfect pattern for my slip. But instead of using it sew up a slip, I sewed up a sundress.

For this particular project, I was looking for an affordable piece of silk in a nude color. I wanted to make a very basic slip that could go under just about anything. If you've been reading my blog since November, you know that I found that perfect piece of silk. After taking the time to properly wash it, I even found a way to share the precious yardage with another project.
A apologize for the boring photos here - beige walls, nude slip and natural dress form. My next project with have some more color, for now this suits what I was looking to accomplish. I'm even thinking this will be a great piece to go under the jumper that I am knitting up.
