SideProject: The Worst Little 1920s Slip Around

Aug 14, 2010 5 comments
This Sunday is the highly anticipated Gatsby picnic at Lake Tahoe, and I've got a GREAT vintage dress to wear.  Of course, it's transparent, so I had to make a slip to go under it.  This was the part where I realised I had no pattern, no time, and no idea what I was doing.

How about some pin-tucks?  How about a couple godets, then maybe I can get the thing on?  I think I was equipped with only 1/4 of a brain when I started slicing and dicing this thing together.  How it ended up to go onto my body at all, and to not fall off or be too tight or try to murder me in my sleep, I don't know.  LUCKILY it's underwear, and the dress that goes over the top is well-made (because I didn't make it!), and gorgeous...but those photos shall be for later :-).


  1. Worst? I think it's fab! I can't wait to see the dress with it!

  2. I don't care how slapdash it went together--it looks great to me! The color is perfection!

  3. It looks really pretty! I love the color! Can't wait to see the dress. :)

  4. Very beautiful and a professional looking photo! Have fun at the picnic...
    Au Revoir,

  5. Aw you've made me feel better about it. I wore it on Sunday, and nothing weird happened, no weird straps breaking or hems coming undone, so I guess it's passable!
