Saturday I'm Teaching the Slip Class!

This is a very useful class!
Dear Friends, I am teaching the Wonderful Petticoat Class today!
Eveyone needs a slip under their little Daygown or Dress.  Although we often think it is for modesty, it also enhances the garment.  Slips are a must.  And we will be learning how to draft our own, using a yoke pattern.  That way you can always have a slip to go with any dress you make.

This is the slip we will be making in class.  
We will practice the Featherstitch and Flowers to embellish it with.

The fabric is this sheer , wonderful, Fairy Fabric!  It is so light , the Fairies might have spun it!

We have to know how to stitch the Shell hem!!  It's lovely on a slip.  And many other fancy and plain embellishments and techniques!

Your Affectionately, Jeannie

Thank you for sharing all the sweet little slips! I, too, think they are necessary under little gowns, bishops and dresses. Have fun in class today!

I love the little slip you are making for class. I made that one for Parrish's Easter dress last year. I was thinking of making another one for everyday out of swiss flannel. What is your opinion on using this for a slip??
