Your Slip is Showing Crochet Edging

I've had my eye on shirt extenders for a little while now. I have a long torso so I'm never sure if shirts will fall where they need to. Then I saw a picture of a shirt extender that was a skirt instead of a tank top, and I thought, "Now that is what I need, I can adjust it how I want." Then I was pretty sure I could make one myself instead of purchasing one.

While I was getting all the things together to make my shirt extender, I stared thinking about when I was a little girl and moms and grandmas would talk about how embarrassing it was when someone would point out that their slip was showing. A slip was one of those under garments that should stay hidden and serves the purpose of not letting the silhouette of your legs show through your skirt.

Times have changed a little. Now we want those slips to show a little and we have changed their name to shirt or skirt extenders.

I have come up with a quick crochet edging to show off under your shirt or skirt. I opted to make my own slip to add the edging to, but it would be very easy to add the edging to a long tank top or favorite skirt.
