Pattern Description:

An essential for any plus size women's wardrobe, slips act like instant linings. They increase opacity, allow clothing to slide over the body without clinging, and they're quintessentially pretty and feminine!

The shorter version is just above the knee on most figures, and features a back walking slit. The longer version features a hip yoke to reduce bulk around the hips and waist, where we don't need it, yet it's full enough for a long walking stride; the length is upper mid calf on most figures. Both slips may be hemmed rather than trimmed with lace for a more tailored look.

Treat yourself to beautiful lingerie!

May also be worn as skirts.

Fast and easy to sew. Complete construction instructions are included with the pattern. I regret that I cannot offer individual sewing instructions. For individual use only; not for resale.
