wedding dress slip

A friend asked me to sew a slip to wear with her wedding gown. The dress has a crinoline, but no slip, so the netting is right next to her skin. Any suggestions for fabric and style? Thanks.

    Make sure the fabric you use is sufficiently opaque! My wedding dress slip was very sheer, and my dress was organza, so we had to buy another slip and pin it to the slip that came with the dress. What a pain! However, it worked. Both slips were silk, but the first one used something too lightweight and transparent, while the second one was a more substantial weight. It was cut on the bias, which was nice also.

      *You can use any A line skirt pattern to make a slip for a wedding dress. This makes it smooth around the waist. No need for a zipper just a button or hook and eye at waist. Extend the side seams to the length you need or add a ruffle around bottom to extend the length. You can use any fabric that is opaque. You can get as fancy as you want with this slip. I have even used eyelet for bottom ruffle. It just depends on what the bride wants.
