camisole top

I had seen this blouse sewn by quite a few people and wanted to give it a try. I had seen only one version- the twisted band collar (view A) but wanted a very simple layering piece. This material I found in my stash but, I am not sure of the content. It draped well and is very soft and though I thought it was a dove grey it seems more like a pale blue/grey. The sewing of this top is very simple and suitable for beginners. I only ran into some problems because of a dull needle, lazy of me. It's loose fitting and could work well belted or not. I like it layered under a cardigan.

I love it! I made the twisted band collar version and it is so comfortable. It was so simple to make, I should try this version as well.

Lovely blouse! I'm looking for some simple dress patterns, any recommendations on ones you've liked, for grown up girls? Thanks.

I remember the one you made last summer. You were one of the people I was thinking of. It was gingham, right?


The Built By Wendy books and Simplicity BBW dress patterns are pretty sweet.
I also like the look of Colette Patterns but, haven't sewn any of them up yet.

Hope that helps!
