    It is easy to add a slit to this pattern before you make it. If you want to change the sewn dress, I would do it like belira suggested: cut slit and add facing to finish it off.

    I have this dress made in a wool fabric with some ‘body’ (like the pattern suggests), but I really miss a walking slit on the bottom of the dress!!! I can hardly walk normal or ride a bike! Am I the only one with this issue? Next time I make this, I’ll definitely add a slit!

      I have seen methods online to add a ‘fake’ slit with a separate piece of fabric. You would just have to open carefully with a seam ripper the central back seam and add your slit piece…
