Mike went out of town for the weekend and while he as gone I took advantage of the fact that I can't sleep when he's gone and whipped this baby up over night. It took about 5 or 6 hours maybe.
Wrinkles like the devil, though.
Simplicity 1144. From the envelope: "Misses' and Women's Slip and Panties: A top-stitched inset joins the softly gathered upper front to the bias-cut lower front. The upper back, shaped in a V at the lower edge, is top-stitched to the bias-cut lower back."
This little darling is from 1944. It was very easy to sew and the instructions were clear with great illustrations. One thing I changed was instead of using bias tape to finish the top edges, I drafted and cut my own front and back facing pieces.
For some reason my bias taped edges in satin always come out looking lumpy and I wanted to make sure that a construction flaw like that didn't detract from the lovely design of this pattern. I think I made the right choice.
I got the fabric from fabric.com... who sadly has stopped carrying this one. (I'm going to email them and see if they can get more because I've never enjoyed working with a fabric so much.)
Oh, and of course, Vincent helped.
