awesome slip for skirts

Have you seen those slips that are meant to be seen?

They can make a semi-short skirt seem more modest, and definitely more feminine and interesting.  The one pictured below is $28 from etsy shop ASlipShop.  

 

Embroidered Floral Eyelet Trimmed Slip - Cream / Ivory

Super cute, right?

I remembered that I had a long slip in my drawer, probably from back when I was a teenager or something.   Slips are just not something I need…..ever.   But if it’s super cute, then maybe….?

I chopped the slip in half and added a 4.5 inch wide eyelet border around the edge.  (I bought a ton of it from an etsy seller under the “supply” section)

I wish I could say this was easy, but SHOOT!!!  That satin-y stuff is terrible to work with.  I’m not proud of my sewing job on this….sigh. 

It Doesn’t Have to be Perfect to be Beautiful.

I think it may work under this flowery skirt that I hacked apart to make 2 sizes larger to fit me.  I lost some of the length when I did that, so a slip under it makes sense.

I think it looks the best under this denim skirt (which I never wear) because it almost looks like a ruffle peeking out of the bottom. 

I have no idea if I’ll actually wear this little “undergarment”, but it makes me feel trendy and thrifty that I was able to make my own version for about $2.

I think it is cute! Funny how styles come back around. I think something similar to that was in back when I was in high school.
