Project: Upcycled slips

I come across quite a few pretty lacy slips in my vintage hunting, but the plain white or nude ones tend to sit in the store forever and not sell while the more colorful lingerie sells immediately. I always thought it was a shame. Sure they aren't as bold as their colored counterparts, but the lace and appliques are just as beautiful. So, I decided to gussy them up a bit with various dyes and then by hand block printing them. The result is above and aren't they gorgeous? I've already decided to keep two for myself, but the other two will be for sale in the store soon, with more slips to follow in different colors, if they prove popular. What do you think?
