I confess that I haven't actually worn this top yet, in spite of completing it maybe two months ago. I have purchased a few cotton voile pieces over the years, thinking that they would be good for summer tops, but then they always seem too sheer. Last time I visited a city, I popped into a Lee Matthews store and was quite taken with a semi-sheer dress layered over a semi-sheer cami. I thought I could do the same, layering my cotton voile pieces over a cotton cami. Only, I haven't sewn any of the cotton voile pieces yet. When I do, I'll have the right cami!
The pattern is 14 Top de Tirantes from Patrones No. 328. The hip line was meant to be elasticated, but I have left the top loose and airy.
The front is elasticated. I modified the pattern a little to finish the front edge with the selvedge of my fabric.
I sewed pin-tucks as indicated on the pattern and busted out a wing needle to sew the decorative stitching on the front, again, as indicated on the pattern. I bought the wing needle years and years ago, but this is the first time I have used it.
The back top edge is elasticated.
I also used the wing needle to make the hem a little more decorative.
