Another Edwardian Slip

This slip is constructed from the same pattern I draped for the black slip. I used ivory silk dupioni, which is stiffer than taffeta and provides more fullness to the skirt. Because of the stiffness of the fabric, I chose only to make one bust ruffle rather than two (in contrast to the black slip):


I have another slip I wish to make from one of my old Butterick patterns and it will be used as the foundation undergarment for a sheer gown I have planned. I'm not quite sure which style from the pattern I'll be using or the materials (maybe a pink or green silk under cream lace..?). Nothing set, just ideas rolling around:
