Coral slip

I've been following a sew-a-long over at pattern~scissors~cloth.  Sherry has a self designed pattern for an awesome slip, so when I heard she was doing a sew-a-long using her pattern, I had to participate.  I'm not quite finished yet, I haven't decided if I will do spaghetti straps or store bought adjustable straps, either way I will have to make another trip to Hancock Fabrics, so it won't be till next week when I get done, but I couldn't wait until then to submit something to  Sew & Tell Saturday over at Sew Country Chick.
Any way this is what I have done  so far:

 I've never cut anything on the bias, so I was a little skeptical cutting this out, I was afraid I would mess it up and it wouldn't hang nicely, but over all I think I did a pretty good job and cutting it out wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, you just have to be more careful and not pull on the fabric when cutting it out and handling it.


  1. Love the coral! Very pretty. One day I'll be brave enough to work with lace and silk.

  2. This looks absolutely beautiful! Great job with the bias and lace...also I love the coral.
