Years ago I bought a card of black embroidered net with a border, and lately it has been calling out my name!
I always intended to do something lingerie-ish with it, and when I discovered a piece of ruby red silk crepe-backed satin in my stash I thought they would combine nicely to make a slip:
I used the embroidered net on the empire line bodice with the border running along the upper edge, and the satin was used to make the skirt and spaghetti straps. No fastenings are required – because the skirt is bias cut you can easily slip it on and off over your head, and so it is really comfortable to sleep in!
The embroidered net has a princess seam over the bust, and I have overlapped it at the centre front and trimmed away the layer underneath:
I’m really pleased with the simplicity of the design. I might “go into production” and make a few more, as I have several pieces of silk satin lying around waiting to become something useful – one of the advantages of designing wedding dresses!
And soon you will be able to make one too – I hope to make the pattern available for you to download – so keep a lookout, or leave a note in the comments for me to advise you when it is ready!
Have a lovely day…..
