Ariane Slip

When I first saw this pattern come across my instagram feed I knew I’d have to make it! Such a pretty and simple pattern and a great way to learn some new techniques. I made mine with more of a nightgown in mind, versus an actual slip.

I went ahead and joined Seamwork Magazine as you get 2 patterns every month for $6! A really good deal if you make a lot of clothes as most apparel patterns are around $10 each anyway! I’m excited to sew more from them. I found their pattern to be simple and clear…so 2 thumbs up. (Note: this is not a paid advert!)

Project Notes:

Pattern:  Ariane by Seamwork
Fabric: ITY Jersey in Burgundy, Fold-over elastic in “Cinnamon” (which IRL is more of a dark salmon color!)
Modifications: I left the bottom hem raw with no hem since it’s jersey and a nightgown
Notes for next time: I would love to make this again in a less stretchy knit. The ITY fabric is wonderfully soft and buttery but doesn’t afford much by way of support. I will also probably add a little micro-bow between the cups as my join could use a bit of work.  I sewed everything with my serger except for the fold over elastic bits and the basting of the cups and lining. I absolutely love those colors together…feminine without being over the top sexy.
