The Iris Waist Slip is a free sewing pattern from Alice & Co Patterns. The Iris Waist Slip was initially designed to go under the Adele Apron Dress, and was inspired by Alice’s mother, Iris. Herself a keen dressmaker, Iris was always a devout advocate for wearing slips under your garments, a habit Alice snootily dismissed in her teenage years, but has since come round to. Now she finds herself promoting the merits of wearing one – smooth lines, decency, keeping your clothes fresh – to her own daughter Lilia, who now also regularly finds herself telling her friends ‘looks great but you want a slip under that…’

The Iris Waist Slip has a myriad of benefits including – smoothing the line, protecting your modesty, preventing saggy bottoms, adding warmth when it’s cool and feeling cool when it’s warm.
