The Saltwater Slip is a simple slip dress with adjustable straps that can be layered or worn on its own. The pattern comes with two length options: above the knee, and tea length (with side slits).

Fit notes: The Saltwater slip has subtle shaping but is a bit loose. It features adjustable straps as well as optional side ties for adding more shape. Depending on the fit you want there are likely multiple sizes that will work for you! We recommend identifying the size of your bust and the size of your hips and blending between sizes if needed. If you want a looser fit for layering shirts underneath, consider sizing up. The pattern includes a B/C or C/D cup front pieces chose the option closer to the bra cup size that you wear.
