The Ruby Slip is a free pdf pattern and comprehensive set of tutorials over at Pattern Scissors Cloth, and as soon as I saw it, I knew it was just the most perfect pattern ever for me and I had to sew it ASAP!
I used some pale green silk from my stash and bought some matching green and brick-red lace and I’m just SO pleased with the end result here! The tutorials online are really like mini sewing lessons and I’d say this is definitely do-able for beginners even though it involves lace and bias silk. The end result is just like very expensive, high-end lingerie!
See way more photos and learn my tips about lace placement over at FehrTrade.com!
