No-Sew Slip Extender Tutorial by Jenny

Thursday, March 22, 2012
Hi, I'm Jenny from Modern Modest Beauty, a modest fashion blog I write with my friend, Catherine. I am always searching for great tips and tricks to make current trends more modest. It can be extremely hard to shop for clothing that aligns with my personal beliefs, so today I want to share one way to help make clothing fit your standards!

Have you ever heard of slip extenders? These magical wardrobe accessories are the solution for those skirts and dresses that are just a bit too short! I have purchased them from a local boutique, but I never found any that were exactly what I wanted. Then I thought, "Hey, maybe I could make one." I must say that I have absolutely no sewing skills and my crafting skills are limited, so I decided to make this a "no-sew" project. If you have a sewing machine, feel free to sew on the trim, instead of using the fabric adhesive.




This project only took about 15 minutes and cost less than $15! If you already have an old slip, it would only cost a few dollars for the trim and a few dollars for the fabric adhesive. I hope all of you beautiful readers will try this out, and please come say hello over at Modern Modest Beauty!

  5. I really, really love this tutorial! I like to wear shorts under my dresses and skirts because I have a bad habit of sitting "Indian style" or "Criss Cross Apple Sauce" or whatever lame name it's called these days, even in an office chair. This would be a perfect, simple addition to keep them from looking out of place if my skirt rides up!
