Vintage-Style Slips

Monday, August 15, 2011

I love wearing vintage slips. They make me feel so glamorous, like a vixen from a noir film. I have two vintage slips that I love the most, so I knocked off the pattern and made cut 3 slips, each in two sizes. The only thing I don't like about vintage slips is they are usually plain, old white. I wanted to make slips that were fun, and vibrant with a vintage-flair.

Each slip has a stretch lace detail across the bust, and lace trim along the edge. I made one in a large, gold floral print (I made bathing suits out of this too!), one in a chocolate and white lace print jersey, and one in a candy-purple floral burnout with creamy lace trim. I bought a ton of each of these jersey knits last spring... they make very comfy slips, silky-soft, great for wearing under a dress or to sleep!

Last week I re-opened shop for a few days to take a last-minute order. A "Tied with a Bow" bra with the side-ruffled panties. I absolutely love how it turned out and will be adding this as a set to my shop too! This set will be shipped off very, after I complete all of the finishing touches...

I've gotten so much done the last few days. Our camping trip got rained out, which was disappointing, but I managed to check off a bunch of things from my wedding to-do list, including finishing the Flower Girls Dresses (which now need to be taken in an inch), finishing the alterations on the bridesmaids dresses, ordered the flowers, and filled out the application for the marriage license. I can't believe we're down to only 4 weeks!

Little Oliver will be glad when the wedding is over and I have some more time to spend with him. I caught him looking longingly out the window at a brief rain-storm we had this afternoon. I can't wait until we have a house with a backyard where he can play...


  1. Those slips are gorgeous. I love the bra and panties too. I will have to save up so I can buy some when you re-open.

  2. Gorgeous. I absolutely adore the Chocolate and White slip.

  3. I love vintage slips and those are marvellous, especially the purple one.

  4. I love slips! I have a large collection of them too. It really makes a difference when I wear them under a dress. :)

  5. Those slips are awesome! Saw the post on Sew Retro.

  6. Utterly gorgeous slips, well done.
    I can't make it to your store to try them on, I live in Australia, so I 'm wondering if you would sell me the pattern so I can make my own purely for my own personal use, not for retail.
    The summers get very hot here and a lady needs some kind of elegant loungewear of an evening - vest and pants isn't cutting it anymore at my advanced age.
    Let me know if you could provide this service.
