I’ve been doing lots of these slips lately…sometimes to make things more modest, but mostly because it can really add something to your ensemble. I’ve made black, linen, eyelet, lace, colorful…I think they are so fun. The funny thing is I only sell them, I have yet to make one for myself. Planning on it though. But I thought it would be awesome if I passed on the tutorial for how to make these.
1. cut 2 square pieces of a lining/slip fabric, like tricot, of 20 inches by 20 inches (this is for an average size girl) or a long retangle that is 40 inches by 20 inches.
2. match the seams and sew them up so you will have a tube.
3. measure elastic tight around you waist, sew it to the tube of fabric by stretching the elastic while zig zag stitching it to the fabric. Then sew the ends together by just straight or satin stitch (tight zig zag stitch)
4. find your trim you want on the bottom. Pin right sides together with the trim’s bottom facing toward the waist line, then straight stitch. You can add whatever layers of lace you want!
5. Iron down.
When I make another one, I will attach pictures.
