I think the Carmo is a great canvas to showcase your beautiful print fabric. You can also use a different fabric for the scarf. I use a soft cotton Lycra jersey, and I also like it in double-brushed poly because it has a lovely balance of drape and structure.
Let’s take a look at the beautiful Carmo Tops that my wonderful testers made!

Does the pattern come with the usual bust size variations?
Hi Ruth, this pattern just comes in regular bust.
I always like your new pattern release posts. The samples show so many possibilities! What I would love to see added is the type of fabric each one used. It would be very helpful in choosing my own fabrics.
This is beautiful. I love its unique look, that it can dress up or down yet is a comfort wearing knit.
Is the left front and back shoulder separate pieces sewn to the lower and scarf overlay?
What stabilizes the beautiful V neckline?
Hi Kay, I hope I am understanding your question. Yes, the left front and back are sewn to the scarf. The neckline is stabilized using stay tape. The side without the scarf also has a neckline to finish the edges.
Great! Thank you for the reply. It all makes sense. I am excited to get this and make up a Carmo top.
