I have been having so much fun embroidering on vintage slips lately! Here are 2 I recently finished.

Those are too cute!  Are you doing anything special to the back of the work to protect it?

No, but I am using knots and recommending hand washing. I think covering the back will make it too stiff and change the drape, and sewing something to cover it will show, I think they are fine uncovered, and no one will see the back normally.

i really love the deer one!

Thanks!!  Smiley

I love the clothes line shot.  Both are beautiful, but I <3 the deer one! 

Did you draw the designs yourself?

I would almost hate to cover them up!  They remind me of the slips in movies where the young women are sitting on a porch fanning themselves, for all the world to see! ( I would wear them in my yard since privacy is not an issue!)

Gorgeous work!  The birds are beautiful!

No, I wish I could draw that well! I found the birds online, and the deer is from Aunt Martha.  Smiley

Thanks!! I think if you were pretty brave they could easily be worn as clothes - over leggings or with a shrug, for instance. I see girls on campus wearing a lot less! I like to cover a up a little more, too, though, when I was younger I would've worn them out!  Cheesy. I adore vintage slips, though - they are so Elizabeth Taylor in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof!  Wink

batgirl,
I love Aunt Martha stuff.  Is the deer still currently in print?  If so, do you know the name of the package that included your deer?

Sweet! I got it at Hancock Fabric, I think. Or maybe Crafty Planet, I buy most patterns at those 2 places.

The deer has a butterfly near its nose in the pattern but I couldn't decide if I wanted it, so I left it off for now, I can always add it if I change my mind. I kind of like just the deer, I think.

i used to wear slips as dresses all the time, you just layer them! (yours would be the top layer, they're too beautiful to cover up!)

Hhhm, never heard of Crafty Planet, but I have a Hancock Fabric and have picked up a couple of Aunt Martha patterns there.  HF carries a jumble of patterns and usually just one or two of each pattern.  My Hobby Lobby carries them as well but they carry a more specific set of patterns and lots of each one.  I also have ordered from www.colonialpatterns.com and they are super speedy.

I love the deer just the way it is.

Okay, I'm late to the party, but I am in love with this idea! And batty you have done an incredible job on the stitching. Cannot imagine how fiddly stitching on the slip must be.  Smiley

Wow!  I never thought about slips-I love them!  I've got a couple of different shirts and skirts I've been wanting to embroider, but slips opens up even more options!  Sweet!
