I bought this ‘Grandma’ slip from the op shop for $6!!
I cut off the top of the dress from the bottom of the armholes and used the bottom of the skirt for the facing pieces. It has an invisible zip in the back. Pretty excited with the result as this is my first reconstruct project and first time sewing without a pattern – just kind of ‘winging it’!
Took about half a day to put together – last minute sewing for an event tonight!
