First the failure,
Yes the full slip was a failure. Sign. It's too small across the boobs and too short over the boobs as well as they aren't full covered. The pattern I used is Kwik 1066.
I've often heard that the older Kwik patterns are great and I have to agree. I love the fact the pattern has a reminder of which way the stretch is supposed to go and the directions are very good. I don't have much experience working with elastic and lace so it was a good learning experience. Sewing the tricot however was extremely frustrating as my machine hated this fabric. It kept getting sucked into the stitch hole and twice I had to take my machine apart to free the fabric. I've made notes so once I located a better stretch satin fabric there will be another attempt at the pattern.
Now for the success,
I made a half slip! Wow sorry for the bad photo. I had leftover supplies from the full slip and I used Kwik 204.
It's a pretty simple make. Took me maybe a hour total including cutting the fabric. But it's one 2014 goal checked off the list!
I have several projects planned that I'm excited to make. More posts soon!
