I'm so chuffed at how simple this was.  Cheesy All I did was get a metre of fabric (I used cotton voile), sew together two sides so it formed a long tube, folded the tube in half so it was still a tube but half as long. Then I sewed along the top 1.5cm from the edge to make a casing for elastic, unpicked a bit of the first seam to make a hole for the elastic to go through, put the elastic in and tada! I have a half slip.



I didn't even need to hem it because the bottom is a selvedge.



I have been needing a half slip for ages, but never got around to making one. But I love how simple and quick this was to make.  Grin

Great idea! My half slip has been AWOL for months now but I'd never have thought of making one weirdly! Thanks Smiley
