Sewing Bias – Introduction and Inspiration

Today we are kicking off a series of posts around our 2 sewing patterns on the bias, the Christy Slip Dress and the Kate Bias Top. Both patterns are strongly inspired by our favorite fashion decade, the 90’s. We just love the era of supermodel and clean lines.

The dress hits below the knee and has a flattering rounded neckline, while the top features a sexy V, but they come from the same block, so you can easily interchange necklines. The simple lines of those designs lend themselves to endless possibilities to suit your fancy. You can choose a beautiful silk, make it double layer and add delicate details such as french seams, a baby hem and tiny spaghetti straps to achieve the perfect party dress or top. We promise you that you will never feel under or over dressed!

 

But you can also decide to make them as luxurious sleepwear or undergarments, with a single layer of silk charmeuse, bias binding and adjustable lingerie straps or try cotton batiste to stay cool on those hot summer nights. And if you feel like going even fancier, how about some lace appliqué around the neckline or the bottom edge?

We created Pinterest boards for you to browse and get inspired, we’ll keep adding more so don’t hesitate to follow them!

Our upcoming posts will feature specific techniques and tutorials as well as versions sewn by you! Grab your patterns in our Etsy Store and  share your slip or our camisole with us on Instagram (#katebiastop #christyslipdress) or in our brand new Facebook Community Group!
