Slip Sew-Along #10: Sew Your Bow!

Hey sew-alongers! I am writing from Arizona, where I'm helping out my parents for a bit. (They are a mess: Dad has broken ribs, Mom has a broken wrist.) I don't have my sew-along materials with me, but luckily there's only one step left: sew on your bow!

It's pretty self-expanatory: just position the bow at the center front seam at the bottom of the neckline lace and sew on by hand securely.

You have a finished slip now! I'll do a tutorial on the panties next week, when I'm back home.

Mom and I set up her sewing machines last night. Don't worry, she can still sew with a broken wrist!
