This 1940s full slip in white cotton has sweet eyelet trim. The perfect vintage slip for wearing on a hot summer day, its lightweight cotton fabric will keep you cool and comfortable. The slip has flattering gathers under the bust and a wide, pointed waist panel. The skirt section has four gores, and it is flared just a bit from hip to hem, but not a full silhouette. The straps can be adjusted with white metal slides, which will adjust the overall length of the slip as well. It is in very good condition, with one very faint, small, yellowed mark on the front of the skirt (see our close-up photo). It should be very difficult to notice when the slip is worn.
