Well I got around to making the half slip, I did view C. This was the one I planned to use an old single bed valance to make and it worked out nicely. In the end I was only short a few inches for the lace which you really didn’t noice once you gathered, and the lace is a larger width then required but I couldn’t bring myself to cut the lace so I left it.
It fits very well under my McCalls 3996 dress and not as hot as I thought it was going to be. I am yet to wear it out in public but Darling Husband said it doesn’t look to bad, not bad coming from him.
Left - without halfslip, Right - with halfslip.
Not sure it I will make this again, that will depend on how much use I get out of it.
What I would do differently next time? Get the right size lace but that’s it.
What I dis/like about this outfit? I like that it feels lighter on then it looks. Dislike the fact that I may not get much use out of it.
