I should be using my Sunday afternoon to do a bit of sewing but it is hard to get motivated to finish my winter shirt when it is nearly 30 degrees Celsius outside. Instead I whipped outside in my new camisole made using Simplicity 1366 and finally got photographs. Please excuse the pool hair!
You would not believe how happy this camisole makes me. I bought this pattern originally to make the dropped shoulder top that has been so popular in blog land but the finished product left me cold. There are things I like about it but not enough to fix the problems and revisit the pattern. I had briefly considered buying a pattern but really wanted to give this pattern a go before I bought yet another pattern.
I wasn't too sure about the fit in this pattern despite it being cut on the bias so I cut it 1cm wider in the side seams than required. I am pleased I did because although I could have run it in, I really like the more relaxed fit the extra width gives.
I wore my new top for Callum's 18th birthday barbeque last Saturday because like today it was a lovely hot summers day. Yes, I know technically it is now autumn but it is nice that summer is hanging around for a while longer.
If this style is still popular I wouldn't mind making this one up again because it is lovely to wear. It will look good for the early autumn with a cardigan as well.
