Too Small Slip To Nightgown Refashion
To solve this unsightly problem I removed the lace bodice and hem from the slip and discarded the rest, and sewed on a larger piece of slinky fabric from my stash. But because the fabric I had was a much darker color than the original slip fabric it didn't look quite right with the light colored lace.
In order to tie the two colors together I cut out some of the roses from the original lace hem and appliqued them to the front of the gown. Since I don't wear slips anymore I'll be using this transformation as a nightgown. For details on sewing the gown and a link to the free downloadable pattern I used for the bias cut body of the nightgown shown below, click here to go to my blog post.
