226 Princess Slip
£15.00 – £22.00
Buy the 226 Princess Slip sewing pattern from Folkwear. The elegant lines of the Princess Slip hearken to 1910 when skirts began to narrow considerably from the fussy underpinnings of the pre-1910 era. But it can also be worn as an easy and modern summer dress, low-knee length for day, or floor-length for evening.
Classic princess seams provide a smooth shape and flattering fit. The neckline is encircled by a row of wide crocheted lace with a narrow ribbon drawstring. Bias binding faces the lace-trimmed armholes. The traditional concealed buttoned placket closes the back, or you may use a zipper.
View A is the simple modern version – an easy summer shift or classic slip for sheer dresses.
View B is the traditional floor-length version – a wide bottom ruffle is lightly gathered onto the slip.
