Princess Slip 226


The elegant lines of the Princess Slip hearken from 1910 when skirts began to narrow considerably from the fussy underpinnings of the pre-1910 era. It can also be worn as an easy summer dress, low-knee length for day, or floor-length for evening.
Classic princess seams provide a smooth shape and flattering fit. The neckline is encircled by a row of wide crocheted lace with a narrow ribbon drawstring. Bias binding faces the lace-trimmed armholes. The traditional concealed buttoned placket closes the back, or you may use a zipper.
View A is the simple modern version – an easy summer shift or classic slip for sheer dresses.
View B is the traditional floor-length version; a wide bottom ruffle is lightly gathered onto the slip. Ending just above the hem, this ruffle peeks out prettily below the hem of its companion; the Edwardian Bridal Gown (Folkwear pattern #227).

Suggested Fabrics: Light to medium weight cottons and blends such as batiste, lawn, challis, eyelet, or broadcloth; rayon challis; handkerchief linen; silk broadcloth. Originals were made of fine cotton broadcloth.

 Sizes; 6-20
