My Creative Space - Silver slip

I'm joining in with Kirsty's My Creative Space meme again this week. Visit Kootoyoo to play along too.


My creative space this week was all about sewing. My eldest daughter and I found a couple of cute dresses in a sale but, as we are both quite tall, they were a tad on the short side. So... I've been making slips. I guess that's an old fashioned word for them... I try to make them in lovely fabrics so that they hold their own, so to speak... a sumptuous extra layer that gives the ensemble a bit more length...




We're off to Melbourne tomorrow for my brother's wedding. We'll also be catching up with some friends and maybe even have some time to look around - any quick suggestions of must-sees?

GOrgeous slips Kylie. I'm a big slip girl, and feel you can never have enough of them. Hope I might see on Sunday xo

What a great idea, love that it can stand on its own or serve a slip purpose too.

I never have that skirt too short problem. It’s more me that is too short! Can't believe you're in Melbourne. Shall consider feasibility of a wedding gate crash...
