Satin/Silk Slipper Pattern

User avatar
Knitnut | Posted in Patterns on

A couple of months ago, I got a sewing magzine that had a pattern and instructions for silk (or satin) house slippers.  Now I cannot find that to save my soul and I have kept all my sewing mags.

At my shop, I have a nice selection of 100% silks (reversible) and want to make a pair of those slippers to showcase these fabrics.

Can anyone help me find that pattern?  I’ve googled my brains out without luck.  The mags I subscribe to are Threads, Sewing Savvy, Sew Simple and Sew News.  Thanks for your help.

    Do you have Threads #104, January 2003? There's an article called "Light on the Sole" with instructions for handmade slippers. No pattern, though, just instructions for drawing your own. I don't remember another, more recent slipper article in Threads, and this one isn't especially for silk satin.

      I might have it - I have most of them for the last several years but I know this was recent - just since fall of 08.  I'll try your suggestion.  Thanks.

    If it wasn't in Threads, it was probably SewNews. I, too, read a variety of sewing magazines, including some fiberarts journals, and I remember that article. If I haven't recycled that issue, I can look up the specifics for you.

      I'll go dig through sew news again - if you do come upon it - that would be wonderful.

        Sewstylish gifts to make Holiday 2007 volume 2 has slippers on the cover. Is that it?

          THAT IS EXACTLY IT!  Thank you soooooo much.  Now all I have to do is FIND that issue in my pile around my house.  I'll betcha I end up re-buying it!  I appreciate you taking the time to help me.

            I'm glad that I could help. Let us know how they turn out.
