Pattern Description: two full slips, a cami, and a hlaf slip

Pattern Sizing: 10-22

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I am way to cheap to go buy slips like this (plus I am rather well-endowed so I like to be able to customize the fit).

Fabric Used: black and white performance knit in a cotton-spandex blend

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: none except cutting the top half larger than the bottom half (grading between sizes based on measurements)

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? yes - already sewed it twice - the white one, sewn second came out perfect because I figured out why I had just a little gaping on the black one. I didn't stretch the FOE enough when sewing. I fixed it with a couple of tucks on the black one.

Conclusion: Great basic piece! I plan to wear these under knit dressed when I don't want to worry about cleavage or shine-through.

Great basic slips! But really, Sandi, do you have little elves helping you out? I'm always amazed at how much sewing you get done.

I'm convinced you have little elves helping you, too. ;) Thank you for this great review and for bringing this pattern to my attention.

Thanks for the review Sandi! I have an hard-to-fit chest (large rib cage, small tata's) and a very long waist. There is no way I could ever find a slip like this in RTW. I'm glad to know it worked well for you! Looks great!

Add some pearls. Earrings, a bracelet and shoes and you can go out on the town with this. It looks wonderful on you.
