Quick Cotton Camisole




I had some large triangular scraps left over from cutting the bias strips for this dress....just perfect for making a bias-cut camisole.  I like to try out camisole patterns as they come along.  One day I'll get around to drafting just what I want.  In the meantime, this is Vogue 2941, which is a DKNY pattern.  It is pretty straight forward with just one piece for the front and one for the back.  I like the wide placement of the straps, but would prefer seaming under the bust.  Although I am wearing it with a skirt today, mostly, I think it will be for sleepwear.  I wasn't going to show it to  you at all, but it is the precursor to a more exciting project that I have coming up...stay tuned!

  1. How satisfying to use up the scraps so beautifully. What a pretty top, surely it can make a few more public appearances!

  3. A pair of solid color pj pants would make that a beautiful lingerie set.

  4. It's really quite lovely and summery - doesn't have to be just sleepwear. It's always so rewarding to make something so pretty from scraps - always feels like a freebie!
