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.

    So pretty! I’m feeling frustrated because I am a bit frozen to start sewing garments agin as it has been so long. And I don’t want to state and not finish it, it feels awful. I have a wonderful serger and fabric for several projects with knits to sew in my serger, and I really want to make some things for my granddaughter. Your pictures are motivating. 😁

      I feel you! The hardest part is just getting started! Oliver + S has some really great patterns for little girls! And IndieSew.com is great for women’s patterns. Indie designers are my favorite because the patterns are usually super helpful for beginners! Pick something simple for the first thing and you will get the hang of it in no time!
