Princess Slip

Princess Slip
C.1910-1912. Not only are these hard to find princess slips very desirable but they are extremely practical too. They were worn under slim fitting one piece dresses to minimize the bulk of underwear worn underneath. They could either be worn as a chemise/underskirt combo or as a corset cover/petticoat combination, depending on your size and preference.
This lovely slip is cut to go in at the waist and is fitted again with darts at the front. The scoop neckline has a drawstring. Broderie Anglaise decorates the neckline, arms eyes and hem of the slip, and there are slots at the hem to add your own baby ribbon trim. The bust has floral embroidery.
The back fastens with linen buttons, but two are missing. I would replace them with mother of pearl buttons. The size is wearable as well, Bust 35", waist approx. 28"- 29", length 43".
