On another thread the question was raised about slips versus linings. Sometimes it is easier to use a slip than to make a lining. I know wearing a slip dates me but I like a full slip. You can't find them right now anywhere-it is even hard to find half slips. I think I am going to make a pair of shorts in lingerie fabric-I think that might work in hot weather. I would like to make a full slip or two-if you make slips what is your favorite pattern?

I've used Burda's nightgown pattern to make a slip. But, recently I have been using Elizabeth Lee Designs one cause I'm nursing. I love making my own. I wear a slip almost always, not only for modesty but it makes your clothes look nicer.

I would like a pattern maker to make a pattern for the "sexy" ones of days gone by. The ones that have shaping at the bust and are kind of flowy empire waist. If you look around etsy there is a few just really sexy pretty ones (vintage). But, I've never found a pattern for such.

The ELD one I use is pretty much a "sack", but I add laces, and use good quality tricot, etc. I like to pretty them up. But, oh for the shapely vintage ones! But, the ELD one is so simple I can whip one up FAST, and I make a lot of them.

I personally like being able to make my own cause I can make them prettier then what is on the market today. BUT, if you are wanting RTW last I looked Dillard's and Khols (possibly Macy's as Dillard's/Khol's/Macy's all seen to sell the same things) were selling them.

PS if you look at my reviews, the raspberry/fushia dress I am wearing, with the brown shrug, that's the pattern I use to make my slips! lol Just a different view, with a deeper neckline

There was a good thread on making a slip from one you had already, using a woven fabric on the bias. I can't find the thread though . Sarah in NYC was the one who described the technique as far as I remember...

It's a good thread, just not the one I was looking for! I will keep looking, but thank you very much for taking the time to post!
