I have an annoying habit of wanting to sew, and then not sewing. Or sewing something in painfully slow and infrequent installments. It was time for an intervention, so I staged an easy win using Gertie's extremely helpful half-slip tutorial. For me, these slips are super functional, since they prevent your skirt from sticking to your hosiery, as well as kiboshing any potential transparency issues. (The two points where I veered from Gertie's instructions were to make my slips are slightly narrower at the waist than at the hem, and to sew my elastic on the lazy way: just a zigzag stitch on the right side, and no steam shrinking.)
This one is very twee.
Different lighting and slightly less twee.
Now that these are done, it's time to finally get cracking on Vogue 8379, inspired by the Selfish Seamstress. I think I pre-washed my fabric for this dress in the summer. INEXCUSABLE.
