Did you also own a black slipdress in the 90ies? I was certainly wearing mine all the time back then. That’s why I’m really happy that this dress style has made a comeback in the last year. I had actually already finished a dress using this pattern from burdastyle last year. However, the cheap fabric from Maybachufer Market in Berlin has been a mistake and was not holding up. Nevertheless, I was wearing it all time and needed desperately a replacement.  I never managed to blog about the last version but wanted to remedy it with the new version as I can highly recommend this pattern.

Modifications: I only lengthened the dress by 5 cm. Otherwise, I did not make any changes. For the workmanship I used the method used at the top version #111 with the bias tape.

Conclusion: I’m really loving this pattern! Due to the pleat in the front, the dress is not too tight and one can easily layer garments underneath it. Additionally, this dress is a very quick sew and it took me only 4 hours to complete it. As I have been wearing the last version of this dress literally to death, I’m sure that also the new version will fill a gap in my closet. A slipdress is surprisingly versatile, which I will hopefully show you soon on here. I can certainly imagine to sew the top version of this pattern as well.
