Hi! I was wondering if anyone could recommend a pattern you used to make slips? Of course no one sells slips for little girls! Except for the amish stores! And all their dresses are so thin! I would like to line the top with flannel on the inside. Has anyone done this? I think I"ll make four this summer, two for each of them , in various sizes!
Thanks for your help!

Slips are the bane of my existence! I have a vintage pattern when my daughter was young. It was similar to McCalls 5089 made so it pulls over her head.

I went to Hancocks to get a 100% cotton white batiste no luck. So, I settled for a very light weight 100% cotton muslin in white. Iit is around $4.75 a yard but it is 90 INCHES wide!! I don't see it on the Hancock's website, but I have bought this fabric in several Hancock store from California through to Texas, so it is fairly common.

It may be called sheeting. Two yards made 5 or 6 slips. You didn't say how old your child is, mine was 9, 10 and 11 when I used this type of pattern.

McCalls have a couple of girl's slip patterns.

Mccalls 4505

mcCalls 4113

You could check sites like lanetzeliving for OOP or vintage slip patterns.

Kwiksew girls slips has been on my wishlist for a while. I need to make dd a slip soon too.

I made the M4113 and had a terrible time getting it to fit dd. Well, I have the problem every time I use a big 4 pattern for kids--the patterns are just too wide and short. If you use it, you'll want to test it out first, and make the adjustments needed before cutting into the real fabric.

Thanks to everyone! I already have McCalls'4505, but really didn't like it. I'll try Mccall's 4113! My girls are 4 and 2. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who is sewing slips for their girls! some of my friends said "Slips????" But my girls are very girly right now and wear skirts and dresses everyday! I also want to sew some white shorts so my older daughter can wear them under her skirts/dresses for when she plays outside!

When my DD was little she wore slips that were gathered skirts attached to camisole type undershirts. Yes there was tons of lace on the hem and added to the bodice. I had purchased those slips but I assume that they would be easy to make as well.Cotton sheeting would work for the slip.

You can probably also adapt a sleeveless blouse pattern or a nightgown pattern to be a slip pattern. You may want to check out some vintage books for directions www.vintagesewing.info/index.html has a small library of vinage books available for use by anyone who goes on their site.

It sould be pretty easy to draft something yourself. You need an a-line shape.. The slip needs to pop over the head and not need buttons.you can use an existing blouse or dress to get you started. I'm sure your girls will forgive you if the early attempts are imperfect but lushly embellished.
