My project is from Amy Barickman’s Vintage Notions book using the Magic Bias Slip Pattern. I envisioned old Hollywood when I seen this slip. So I made a trip to my favorite fabric warehouse and found this beautiful crepe back satin in a vintagey color of copper with a coordinating embroidered and sequined mesh fabric. I dropped the hemline and added a skirt overlay, I did not cut the triangles from the under arm area as described in pattern to use in the front and back neckline area. Instead I opted for rounded and faced armholes and leaving the back with the deep V, but facing that as well. The front I added a mitered V band, X straps, then adorned with Fire Opa, Marea and Crystal AB’s from Dreamtime Creations Preciosa collection.
I was graced with having Alicia Weber as my fit model. Thank you to Brenda Steward and Andrea Y. Gray for the photo work

Material Notes
