IRIS WAIST SLIP

Regular price £0.00

The Iris Waist Slip was initially designed to go under our Adele Apron Dress, and was inspired by Alice’s mother, Lilia’s grandmother, 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 its cool and feeling cool when it’s warm.

FIT

Hugs the waist and skims the hips. This slip is intended as a slinky under layer to wear under any dress or skirt.

VARIATIONS

Lengthen or shorten to a couple of cm above the length of the skirt you intend to wear it with, you’ll want a collection of these to compliment your whole Alice & Co Patterns wardrobe. Start with one just above the knee for the Adele Apron, Komodo Triangle and Regatta dresses and lengthen to mid-calf for the Iceberg Dress.

LEVEL

Easy-peasy! A gentle introduction to knits if you’ve never sewn with them before. Also a satisfying first lingerie project.

POUR LE FORMAT A0 : suivez les instructions données par votre imprimeur. Des services sont également disponibles en ligne.
