Another Silk Culotte Slip + Bonus Silk tee

This is another silk culotte slip for wearing under skirts, so now I have three. They are all from the same lovely blouse weight silk and pretty much identical. The original has a piece of black ponte as a tab identifying the back, the new ones have a small piece of coloured elastic each one red, today's blue. Hopefully this will just allow me to rotate the wear of them.
There was not enough left to make a fourth pair so instead I whipped up this little silk tee, the edges are just overlocked, turned and stitched and its made from one piece with a hole cut for the head, then the side seams stitched up. It actually fits quite well.
The front neck is scooped out but the back neck is cut straight across. Should be nice with pearls to lift the darkness round the face. This lovely matte silk reads more as charcoal than black.

I've been meaning to make some similar short slips for under work dresses but I heard the legs can bunch up in between the thighs, have you had this issue with yours?

Hi Twisted poppy, well I find the silk don't they slip nicely against each other, but yes the poly cotton ones sort of stuck to each other between the legs which is why I got rid of them.

Really good idea and the silk would feel fabulous. I can see that the poly cotton would not work but anything slippery should be lovely.
