Free Lingerie Pattern: The Ruby Slip

This Free Lingerie Pattern is for a luxurious slip with a bias cut skirt and lace bodice. It is a quick and easy to make and is a great project to start sewing lace and bias cut garments. Pattern instructions are included with the pattern (separate download file), but there are also step-by-step instructions in a sew-along hosted by Patterns Scissors Cloth.  The pattern is available in sizes 8-14.



Fabric recommendations

Choose a fabric you can wash, you don’t want to send this piece to dry cleaning.

  • silk satin
  • silk crepe de chine – wash very well
  • some good quality polyesters are also suitable for this project
    • polyester Georgette – wash well ,easy to sew, and comfortable to wear
  • Cotton on the bias grain can also be used


Lace recommendations

  • Use soft laces.  Some laces are designed for the outside of garments or have beading,  thoese are not good options for this project because they will not be comfortable.
  • Most laces come in black, white, or beige colors but you can experiment dying the laces.


Sewing supplies

  • Thin Pins
    (keep them separate from your regular pins)
  • Applique Scissors
    –  they have a wide blade to protect one layer while cutting the lace.
