My favorite detail on this vintage slip skirt is the scalloped edges at the hem— it really elevates the look and makes it feel like more of a skirt than an undergarment. Vintage half slips are such an amazing styling piece, as there are so many different ways to wear them: they make amazing swim coverups, can be worn as a regular skirt, and can also be layered under shorter dresses or sheer dresses and skirts— this one, in that case, would provide a fun pop of color, with the warm watercolor floral palette. Circa late 1950s/early 1960s, the waistband is elasticized and has a lot of stretch to it, making the sizing flexible, and darts at the waistband create a nice shape. Note that there is a pillow tab on the waistband, making it all the more valuable for vintage lingerie collectors. A pillow tab is a small square of satin fabric on the waistband's interior, that covers the seam to reenforce the seam, and too prevent chafing and irritation when worn. It is considered a sign of quality in vintage lingerie. The thoughtful details that went into the construction of clothing of this era never ceases to astound me— even pieces that were meant to be worn as undergarments!
