Vintage 1960's Silk Dress Slip Made to Order
A handmade reproduction of a 1960's vintage Simplicity pattern dress slip.
Made of 70% cotton, 30% silk voile the dress slip has an A-line figure shape with a bust dart on either side and a dart at centre front. The neckline is an open style and there are princess seams on the back. All seams are French seam finished, the neckline and armholes are finished with self bias binding and hand stitched. The hem is also hand stitched.
This is a beautiful easy to wear and care for dress slip. The composition of cotton with silk makes it sheer, with a high sheen and a silky slip feel. It is therefore breathable and static free!
