Pleasant Airs Slip
style: vintage 1920s cotton floral embroidered slip
vintage / modern: Vintage
This vintage slip chemise dress has us a bit mystified as it appears to be hand sewn and perhaps altered over the years. With a slightly weighted cotton that may have been Edwardian, shaped into a 1920s slip silhouette, and then altered to have a more 1950s bodice, not to mention the similar (but not identical) white cotton embroidered straps that may have been added later......well, let's just say we're charmed by this lovely piece.

From over a decade's worth of experience as a vintage clothing seller and collector, we are sharing some general care and laundering advice gleaned from women of the past. Practicing these "vintage" methods is another way to be more sustainable.
- Wear a slip with your garments to keep your garments cleaner longer (in most cases it takes much less water/resources to launder a slip than it does a garment)
- Wear your garments more than once before laundering
- Use cold water to launder your garments, hot water can deconstruct the fibers of your garments more and also can cause shrinkage.
- If using a machine, only wash full loads of laundry
- Hang garments to dry (every Adored Vintage girl loves seeing clothes on a line!) Dryers can really be rough on your garments (that lint trap is literally bits of your clothes as it slowly falls apart!)
- Spot clean garments immediately
- Hand wash your clothing as often as possible.
- Learn simple repair and mend skills to increase the longevity of your garments.
