Bias, close-fitting slip has shoulder straps and very narrow hem.
(Note: this pattern is for a shirt dress and includes a pattern for a slip. I sewed the slip only and so this review relates only to that). Pattern Sizing:
8 - 24 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 think this is a great pattern to have on hand. The fact it is included as part of a shirt dress pattern is a bonus. Nothing to dislike. Fabric Used:
Fine cotton lawn. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I would strongly advise sizing down, to account for the bias cut nature of this garment.
I did a 1 inch sway back adjustment by pinching out the required amount, tapering to nothing at the side seams.
Shortened slip length by 2 inches before cutting out.
I used a Schmetz 70 needle for fine fabrics.
I used French seams to sew the side seams. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might sew this again as required. It is a great pattern to have on hand: I highly recommend. Be warned there is some very delicate sewing on this project: rolled hems at the armholes/ necklines and the hem, and I made my straps with my rouleau turner. But I am very pleased with the finished garment. Conclusion:
A great basic. This slip fits me better than any other bias cut slip I own (all RTW). We are lucky people to be able to sew for ourselves
I made this slip specifically to wear under a cotton eyelet dress.
