I have been wanting a simple 1940’s slip for about a year to go under my swing dress. After finding just the right piece of silk, I finally made my slip. This is the same pattern that I used for my sundress this past summer.
I used some vintage snap fasteners on the side placket and I really like the result. It is much less bulky/structured than a zipper would be on this delicate fabric, yet it still creates a great closure.
