I just reconned a plain, flesh-toned strapless slip into a sexy slip dress! I dyed it brown, added pink lace, and embroidered the pink strawberries. I'm having much fun with slips lately!

The pink and brown are lovely but the embroidery really adds the punch!

This would be so cute worn with a light pink cardigan...oh yummy!

you are currently one of the worst influences on craftster on me.....
i have a few suitcases of clothing to recon.
a wall of fabric

and now i want to go find adorable vintage slips to make more adorable. i'm glad you keep posting these so i can live vicariously through the wonderful pics.. vintage slips, hand embroidery, hanging on a clothesline... great way to start every morning and pretend i live in vintage adorable land... until i have to leave the apartment and face the real world where logos replace embroidery. thanks for great Craftster starts to my mornings lately though Cheesy your slips just get more and more wonderful
