See-through Skirt Problem Solved

After: No see through
Honduras: Clouds burned off. 
The sun came out.

Trip: Honduras

Packing Goal: Refashion from the stash.

Before: Nice gauge skirt from the stash. I wanted to wear it on ship for dinners. Even lined, it was see through. I have a stash of old slips.

After: Skirt is well lined and there is no chance of packing the wrong slip.

Steps: Elastic waist-band cut away from old slip.
Old slip was permanently stitched in place in the skirt waist band seam.

Before: See Through
Before: Old Slip

I have the same problem with some of my skirts! Even with two layers of fabric, some skirts are see through! Nice solution.
