Meet our latest pattern – the Sadie Slip Dress
. Since we saw this trend popping up (and because we lived and loved it through the 90s
), we’ve had this design on our patternmaking radar.
Though it can most definitely be worn as outerwear, the bias cut slip dress is also designed as a timeless and classic undergarment that can be worn beneath sheer garments or as a slinky, sexy nightgown. Features include a shaped neckline with facings, spaghetti straps and optional back darts.
For a more casual look, Sadie looks fabulous when paired with a t-shirt, singlet or sleeveless shirt. Layer it up with a jacket or cardigan for a style that is both cool and comfortable.
My black version is made up in our Black Silk Satin with the shiny side inside, matte side outside.

Colette shortened her Sadie and made it up as a nightgown. The fabric she used is a Liberty of London tana lawn – Juniper
– and for some extra special detailing she added a black lace trim
Recommended fabrics for this pattern include silk satin, crepe de chine, viscose, rayon. Lightweight cottons and linens are also perfect but because they don’t drape like a silk, we’ve also included the option to add back darts. Other suitable fabrics from our current collection include:
