Ruby Slips Around the World

I love seeing all the Ruby Slips popping up on sewing blogs right around the world, and it gives me a real buzz to see what a great job everyone has done!  Following are some awesome examples, and you can click on the links to read the story behind each one.

Kristen at K.Line made two!  One in navy silk with the daintiest lace:

And another in rose pink - can you believe this was the test version?!

Yvonne from Handije Handges made one using a pretty print:

A sassy purple Ruby was made by Chris at Cuada Designs:

Melissa at Fehr Trade made a gorgeous seafoam green slip, and even managed to make some cute panties from the remnants too!

Suzy from Suzy Sewing has just posted about her peachy-pink version with black lace:

Raquel from Florida sent me a photo of her sheer version in my new favourite colour:

Elle from It's A Sewing Life is making a grey version - it looks beautiful even half-finished, and Elmo from "Adonising" Dressing for Dinner made a camisole version - what a great way to use up those smaller pieces in the stash!

Or have you already made a Ruby Slip?  Do leave a link in the comments so we can admire it too!


  1. This project is definitely on my 'must do' list -- even more now that i've seen so many lovely finished slips.

  2. I will. I must. these are gorgeous! mmm...Valentine's Day is right around the corner!

  3. Oh it's so nice to see the others in the wild, too! I'm already mentally planning more for myself, including a camisole version (have you seen there was another on PR recently? ). Thanks so much for linking to mine! :)

  4. I am so happy that you make it possible to see them here because I don't share in the modern social media. Yours were lovely but I see more beautiful solutions. Congratulations to everyone.
    you can see mine, although I din't yet finish the hem. On the outside I used the second idea with the gathered toppart and inside is the first idea with an addes cross your heart

    1. What a gorgeous version! The straps are really beautiful too.

  5. Very lovely and sew well done! My hats off is off to all of the contributors. A slip has been on my to do list for quite awhile and I will be sure to check back here for inspiration.

    Thanks for promoting the art form through your blog, its charming.

  6. They all look beautiful. Interesting that the slip has faded a bit in popularity, but it is very nice to make a dress and not need to line it because of wearing a slip.

  7. What a beautiful assortment of slips!

  8. These are so lovely - I'm glad that you posted them. I'd really like to make the Ruby Slip in the near future.

  9. Thanks for sharing the pattern Sherry, it was a joy to make. Seeing all the other versions makes me want to start another one!

  10. Hi Sherry - this is a lovely sew along and I can't wait to try it out. Thank you to you for sharing it and the work it took to get it online.

  11. Hi Sherry,

    Today I finished my sew along. You can watch it on my site
    I really loved this idea of sharing a pattern. Thank you very much for this initiative!
