1900's Cotton Slip with lace

From the seller:

An enchanting 1912 Belle Epoch era full cotton and lace trimmed slip. The neckline and armscyes are trimmed with lace. The neckline has a pink satin drawstring. The hemline has a double tiered ruffled bottom. The top tier is trimmed with inserts of lace. The slip has a front button closure. It is in very good condition. There are a couple of pencil tip size holes and a few scattered small age spots. This is a very wearable slip. Bust 36 Waist 28 Length from shoulder to hem 61.

From Me:

What struck me about this is you can easily see the seam lines. It looks fairly simple and would be great to re-create for under a late 1900's/early 1910's dress.

  1. What a lovely example of a princess petticoat! At least, that was what it was called back in the 1880s.
