Description

I recently bought a white summerdress. The top part is decorated with embroidery, but the skirt is made out of plain jersey. You hear me coming from a mile away: the skirt is practically completely see-through. So I created a very simple underskirt, half slip or petticoat, whatever you like to call it!

Slip

Material Notes

Plain white cotton: 106 cm wide x 60 cm long (note: the width depends on the desired fullness of the skirt and on the width of your bottom, which needs to be able to fit into the skirt of course; the length depends on the length of the dress you need a petticoat for. I’m a size 40 and 100 cm was quite enough for me.)

Elastic band, 5 mm wide

Two small buttons

Two pieces of yellow satin ribbon, each about 6 cm in length and about 5 mm wide

Difficulty

Novice
