Here are the resources for the fabric, lace that I used in my Princess Slip I am a retailer for Bear Threads (they only sell wholesale). For the slip I used: Bearissma 55″/140cm wide cotton Swiss batiste that retails for $ 27.95 yd. This is the finest cotton batiste I have found. It is slightly translucent and a bit pricy, but I decided if I was going to invest so much of my time doing heirloom, I wanted to use the best. Bearissima II 55″/140cm wide cotton Swiss batiste retails for $28.95 yd. This is as fine as Bearissima, but isn’t as translucent, being slightly heavier.
