Pattern: Slip from Vogue's Misses Dress and Slip #1177
Fabric: 1 yd silk cotton blend
I've needed a slip forever, and I've had this fabric almost just as long. Finally, this weekend as part of my continued stash-busting project I took the time to sew it up. The fabric is this great silk cotton blend, which really is the best of both worlds: the drape and softness of silk, the press and sturdiness of cotton. I seriously need to use this fabric more often!
Honestly, the fit's not that great, my stitching isn't anything to show off, and it's not the easiest to get on and off, but as a simple and much-needed undergarment I think it will do the trick.
The funny thing is, while this is a wardrobe basic, I actually had trouble finding a basic slip in stores. The vintage ones were tons of $$, and the department store brands either had control bands or were made of awful synthetic material that would have not have been discreet under a sheer garment. Another win for sewing!
