Pattern ~ Scissors ~ Cloth Ruby Slip

October 26, 2014

A while back I made a slip for my friend using the free ‘Ruby Slip’ pattern from Pattern ~ Scissors ~ Cloth.  It could not have been a more satisfying sewing experience: it was quick to put together and it fitted her like a dream.  I got the fabric from Boyes and really loved working with it…in fact, I would like to go back and get more for myself!

The slip was such a success, I wanted one for myself.  I needed one of those instant gratification projects after slaving away on my lace dress for three weeks!  I had just enough scalloped edge of lace left over, which I used for the bodice, and I bought some red silky stuff for the skirt.  I made a full bust adjustment to the pattern and got to work.

What a great pattern!  The only tricky thing is turning the rouleau loops, but it isn’t that bad once you get going.  Although I don’t particularly need slips like this, they are fun to make, so I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for nice silky fabrics and lace with scalloped edges!

If you haven’t tried this pattern, I fully recommend it!

    These are so pretty, particularly your red one. I don’t have much need for something like this, but they look as if they’re fun to make.

    Two very slinky numbers. These look so lovely, and incredibly neat too! Will definitely have to take a look at the pattern 🙂

      It’s great, especially considering it’s free!

    They are gorgeous, particularly your red version! The pattern has been on the ‘to do’ list since it was released! You’ve reminded me just how amazing it is!

      If my friend hadn’t have asked me to make her a slip I may have overlooked this pattern on account of its simplicity, so I’m glad I tried it!

    They’re both so pretty – good job :-)!!

    It looks like Sherry has taken her blog down. I was just wanting to have a look at this slip pattern and Pattern Scissors Cloth isn’t there anymore!

      Gosh, yes, you are right! It has been made private. That’s a shame, perhaps Sherry didn’t want to keep the blog up.
