Make a Flannel Half Slip for Warmth

Make a flannel 1/2 slip to keep you warm. Cut a piece of new flannel, baby blankets, or section of a flannel sheet. For the length: measure from waist to knee. Add 2 inches for hem, and 3 inches for top casing for elastic. The width of fabric needs to equal your hip measurement plus 4 inches.

Sew side seams, hem and upper casing. Cut 1 inch elastic to fit waist and use large safety pin to feed it through the casing. Sew ends. These slips plus turtlenecks have enabled me to wear "summer" clothes all year.

Right on! You can repurpose sheets for many clothing and craft projects, also tablecloths, shower curtains, etc. Sheets can make great curtains, pillow covers, costumes, stage props or playclothes. Look for good quality in the material if you plan to wear the item.

Beautiful high quality buttons can be very expensive in fabric stores, but you can salvage these from thrift clothing. Simply detach and return the clothing to be recycled. Also, many thrifts have a section of fabric, notions, and patterns.

Imagine how warm a flannel long slip would be under our long skirts. Great idea!

Ruthellen, you have just taken me back 60 years plus, as a baby I had bouts of pneumonia, which reared it's head all through childhood. My grandmother made me wear red flannel singlets and thick bloomers, how I hated them!! Here I am all these years later, thinking it would be a great idea. Kind regards, Jean Maffra Victoria Australia
