Hi y’all! I am about to start this great early 50s mail order shirtwaist dress and need your thoughts. The dress itself is only one piece, its fitted through the waist with 8 darts on the front and 4 at the back. The fabric is very shear and very floaty, cotton or a cotton blend I. So, I have to either wear a slip or line the dress. If I line the dress it will lose some of its floatyness but I won’t have to worry about having to wear a slip but, if I leave it alone I could wear a pink slip one day or a white slip or a green slip to make the dress look different. But realistically, I don’t have colored slips nor would it be easy to get a good colored slip. Sigh, what say the masses?
