Facebook Marketplace has a lot of stuff on it. That was not surprising to me. It made selling stuff easier than on other platforms, where you had to create a separate account for that purpose only, and you didn’t know a lot about the seller since it was often a small profile, without real names, and and only with ratings on the seller’s reputation as a seller. Facebook Marketplace made selling seamless, essentially, and even curated deals for you by prioritizing items sold in your city or town, or nearby rather than somewhere across the continent or even on another continent. What was surprising, to me, was some of the completely legal, not even risqué, stuff being sold on it.
ONYX All Lace Slip
In my follow up fitting adjustment of the AMETHYST slip blogged about yesterday, I chose to give a first try at an all lace garment. I had sewn with lace before. However, the lace was only ever a part of the garment in terms of fabric, never the entire garment.
Last winter, I was taught how do make a lingerie slip in my Sewing Guild from a free online version called The Ruby Slip. I had to do a bust adjustment beyond what was the range in the pattern, but otherwise, put it together as shown. Well, I added trim and that flower pattern was purple and white shear on top of the shiny purple polyester seen in the rest of the garment.
