Continuing from my earlier post, this half slip/ petticoat is crimson in colour and features a beautifully concealed elastic waist band.
While making this version, I had to sacrifice on the size of the piece. I wanted to make the waist band around 46 inches, but was only able to make it stretch to a maximum of 42 inches. It still counts as plus size for a lady, but is a bit on the smaller size for sissy costumes.
It works as a companion to the champagne coloured slip/petticoat from the previous post you can see by clicking here.
This item is also for sale in my etsy shop. You can see it by clicking here.
This March: Revisiting my love for textile design
My recent design is a champagne colour Satin Dress Slip with cream lace trim.
I usually finish my pieces as economically as possible to save on cost and time; but, this time I opted toward beauty by beautifully concealing the elastic waist band.

PART SIX: FAVOURITE VIEWS OF MACHICO, MADEIRA
Away from the busy capital city of Funchal Madeira is the third most populated city of Machico. In this smaller town, the population of about 20,000 residents are mostly older and so the streets are much quieter.
Lovely and secluded alley ways show glimpses of the mountainside.
In these side street views, it is easier to imagine the day to day lives of the people who live here.
Standing on Rua Banda D’Alem I came upon picturesque views of island life.
Storm windows are very popular here, and nearly every window I have seen has one. The aesthetic effect is quaint and furthers the island life feel.
The door knocker is a hand- I am unsure of how new or old this is, but I love the originality it provides for. My own home in Canada features original door knockers, and I have always felt that it adds so much character to any home.
A Machenesque street dog saying hello. Never fear, the dogs that roam these streets are friendly and do not bother people.
Last but not least of the views of Machico: an alley way that leads to the unknown. My imagination ran wild with this one, because I can only dream of how many lovers have met secretly in this tunnel, and how many more will meet again in the future.
