Is it machine-embroidered?

Thanks! You should definitely look for vintage slips! It's super fun. It's a little time consuming but there are so many possibilities, and embroidery is relaxing. I like to do it while watching netflix.  Wink The slips aren't bad to work on at all.

Aw, thanks! I run across them in thrift stores quite often! This one I almost overlooked, it was nude colored and plain, kinda like a sausage casing, LOL. But I decided it had potential and voila!  Cheesy

Ha! Were we seperated at birth? You should try it! It's fun and relaxing! It's not a speed sport, but it's one that doesn't take a lot of special equipment!

ok, back to your post again because on a separate brain path earlier today i was thinking- i've been making lots of skirts.. hmm most aren't lined.. hmm some are too sheer.. hmm i would like slips..
so now i have a perfect reason to actually try my hand at emulating the vintage glory. a justified love!

what kind of material are the ones you're using made of, that take the dye so nicely and politely...?
do you make up the designs you embroider on or is there some wealth of embroidery patterns out there that i just need to explore?

for some reason i'm totally hooked on wanting adorable slips now.
