Finished: The Ruby Slip

Check another challenge off the list! Yesterday, I finished the ruby slip that I started with Sherry's sew along way back in December! But the holidays happened, and then I had to send my serger off to the repair guy, and then, and then... you all know how that works.

The slip is actually a quick sew, and once I sat down to it, I think it was done in about an hour.

Not a lot to say about it. It's been awhile, but I think I cut the size 12 and didn't make any alterations. Next time (and there will be a next time) I'll make the back a little bit narrower and put the straps a little closer together in the back and that will help with the fall off the shoulder issue. Oh, almost forgot... Sherry had 2 lengths in her pattern, and I created a 3rd that was somewhere between her 2. It hits right above my knee. Sshhhh, don't tell Sherry, but I just eyeballed it when I was tracing the pattern. Oh, sure, I did go back and do a quick measure to make sure it was right.

The little pink flower thing you'll see. Yeah, I think I'll take that off and just put on a little ribbon bow.


  1. It's lovely Elle! Really pretty.

  2. Your slip is beautiful, fit for a fabulous trousseau at best. I downloaded the pattern, but frankly I was scared to try it. Maybe one day.

    1. It's really a very easy pattern, made even easier when you use Sherry's tips during the sew along! I know you can do it!

  3. Beautiful. I never even managed to print out the free pattern. How lame is that? lol

  4. This is beautiful Elle , I love the subtle colours you have used .

  5. That is so pretty. Brings back memories of a time when I had fabulous lingerie-when I wore a lot of dresses to work. You will enjoy "slipping" into that beautiful thing.

  6. It's lovely! The lace is so pretty, beautiful design.

  7. Very, very pretty! I downloaded the pattern, but have yet to make it! And I do need slips!
