Minerva Craft Blogger Network: Butterick Patterns by Gertie - B6130 Slip

Minerva Craft Blogger Network: Butterick Patterns by Gertie B6130 Slip
It's time for April's Minerva Craft Blogger Network make! I've been wanting to try Gertie's retro slip pattern for a while now, and after seeing some of her own versions on her Instagram recently, I bumped it to the top of my sewing queue!

Sewing Summary:

Notions: Nylon Lace Trimming Red, Fold Over Elastic & 2 x Hoops and Sliders

Sewing time: About an hour!

Modifications: I swapped the elastic for fold over elastic.

Fit: Perfect!

Difficulty: Nice and simple - a great make for beginners.

Watch out for: Make sure you make use of the different cup size patterns for the best fit!

Make Again?: Yes! I'd love to make all versions of this pattern.

You can see this slip in my March Sew & Tell YouTube video HERE!

Thanks for reading, pinups!

  1. I just bought this pattern! Where did you get your stretch lace from? You need so much of it and it can be really expensive! Impressed you made this in an hour! - I think I will be a bit slower than you!

  2. Sorry, I just realised you linked the fabric etc, this is helpful, thanks. Is the lace stretch?

  3. Really pretty , and so fast - impressive
