Silk Slip: OOP Simplicity 8666


This is another version of out-of-print (OOP) Simplicity 8666. It's a simple bias cut slip design that has made an appearance here many times before. The only difference is that this version is made out of 100% silk fabric.  

It has the same changes as the others: addition to the side seams, lowered the front neckline by an inch, shortening of the hem length, French seams, matching bias tape finish for the straps, armhole and neckline finish. The hemline is finished with a narrow top-stitched hem. This project was actually started months ago, it just needed the length of one of the straps to be adjusted before it could be gifted.  

Project Details

Seams:  2.4 seam length

Seam finish:  French and bias tape

Tips:  Use a layer of tissue paper underneath to cut the silk.  It will help prevent slipping of the fabric while cutting.  

Fabric:  2 metres

Pattern:  OOP Simplicity 8666

Label:  "me made" 

Additional Tools and Supplies:  Cutting table, tissue paper, scissors, silk pins, sewing machine, bias tape maker, iron, ironing board, seam ripper.  

Stay Safe and Happy Sewing!
