fancy toile

this is a  multi function slip that will act as the undergarment- lining for my rendition of the lily dress and also the toile used to make what is hoped minor adjustments. i changed plans-again- because was not in the mood of spending more money on the lining undergarment than on the dress itself. one and a half meters of raw silk  did not get me enough to replicate the pattern, the skirt is really voluminous, therefore i opted for an a line slip with a back seam.
 however, if the toile doesn't work i'll have to re buy. big saving!

will sew this first and then and only then cut this baby. it was one of my buys in nippori fabric town when i was in tokyo last spring.

 the fabric is a very open plain weave combinig silk and linen which makes it crisp yet supple.
i am making a sleeveless version so it can be worn with a sweater underneath  during cold weather.
