Hey y’all – today I’m sharing this slip dress tutorial. This actually isn’t a new tutorial at all – I just remade an old one in a new fabric, with minor alterations.
This is actually the pattern from my Bias Sundress. To make this look, I switched from quilting cotton to silk. This beautiful border print is one I picked up at a local shop that (sadly) went out of business.
As you can see below, I altered the neckline – instead of cutting it in a V like the original dress I rounded it off so I could just sew one continuous piece of bias tape without messing with the V.
I omitted the waist drawstring since this fabric drapes so nicely – it’s the perfect thing to slip on for a hot summer day.
I also cut the fabric for a slight high low hem.
