Lacework much? :D
I was at the fabric store, theoretically just to get corset supplies. And I walked up on this GORGEOUS lace on-60"-wide-cotton batiste. It was begging to be a slip/petticoat. Begging. I think I heard it cry.
Well, of course it was crying. The whole bolt was marked in stripes around the lacework with a weird yellow stain. I thought, "eh. I can tea-dye it". But we always wash our fabric before anything else... even if we're going to dye it. Yes, yes we do.
It washed out. Totally. I'm just going to make a simple waistband and hem it. It really doesn't need anything else. And I'll have enough left to make a cami that matches. :)
Speaking of pretties... I put the embroidery pattern on my whitework shirt and have started work. It's not the finest embroidery in the world (my handwork isn't what I'd like) but I think it's going to come out well.
So - that's what I'll be putting over the corset. :D You asked!
