I always line straight skirts and other garments if fabric is very sheer - as I thought slips were a bit daggy, and they have a tendency to hang below your outfit (ewhh). Recently I have purchased a couple of dresses that are very sheer, so I had to get a slip, and they are actually quite comfy ($24 at Target) - this is the style:
I hate,hate lining garments..So, I do own quite a few slips.Mostly I buy the slips.. You should see me in the fabric stores.... holding up the peice of fabric to the light...to see if I can see through it.[dont want it, if I can see through it.ha.]
I have to tell you this cute one on my grandaughter... they are on there way to the doctors office. she tells her mom, oh no!! we have to go back...My panties are NOT white. my daughter [confused] says, "why do they have to be white?" because.. dr.marta [pediatrician] makes you put on that gown and colored panties show through it..and that looks yuky !!! [This was my 6 yr olds reply...ha]
So, I guess if a 6 yr old figures out it looks yuky... I need to remember the lining [cover ups] too.
she is a mess.. You never know what may come out of that mouth.ha
