The latest project that I am working on ( along with the coat that I have not started yet) is this bias slip from this Butterick pattern. It is OOP (out of Print) and another purchase from online.

I am moving right along with it. Last night, I figured out how to make do with a few trims and ribbon from the stash, instead of making a trek out to Fabrix over on Clement St. in search of a flat lace that would suffice. It is going to turn out beautifully. I have to admit sewing bias to bias can be tricky on the side seams so I am going to hand baste it to some thin pattern paper first.

I hand stitched the violet picot trim to the rococo trim and then I am going to machine stitch it to the satin ribbon. It will make a lovely addition to the chemise.
