Nothing like a granny slip is there?

Over the years I’ve become a sucker for pretty little dresses. 
However as the years go on less of these dresses seem to be coming with lining and I’m having to revert to wearing what I call “granny slips” underneath to maintain some of my modesty! 
These slips are pretty ugly though. 
The ones in my price range that is! 
 Of course if I were willing to pay more than I paid for the dress I could get something I’d be proud to wear but alas funds are not as good as they once were. 
So … I’ve decided to make my own. 
This being the first.

I’ve made it with come lovely cotton lawn which only cost 5 euro a metre and trimmed it with some trimmings I already had at home.
You know what, I’m quite pleased with it :o)
Of course I now want to make one in several different colours but I’m finishing my shirt dress and already cutting out a pinafore that I’m just dying to make up !!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend and thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my previous post about the pincushion.
Thank you also Julie, from the lovely A Tale from Toadstool House blog for my Versatile Blogger award.  Really appreciated x

Have a lovely evening everyone!
