Sometimes you just need a base layer for your outfit to keep yourself modest; the Cartagena Cami is ideal for that purpose. Designed for soft knit fabric such as rayon spandex, the Cartagena is very fitted, acting as a comfortable second skin that you barely notice its existence. And if you are so inclined, the Cartagena Cami can also be part of a sleeping ensemble!

  • Round front neckline
  • Deep round back neckline
  • Fold-over elastic as neckline binding and straps
  • Designed for stretchy knit fabric

Skill Level: Beginner

Sizes: 00 – 20 (See “Size Chart” tab below for detailed measurements)

Choosing Your Size

  1. Compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table, choose the size that best fits your bust. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  2. Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your waist. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  3. Compare your hip circumference (widest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your hip best. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  4. It’s OK to use different sizes. See instructions for details.
  5. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the top. See instructions for details.

I highly recommend that you check your fit by making a test garment with inexpensive fabric that has similar stretch, weight and drape as your final garment fabric.

    This is such a great base layer! I made mine with cotton lycra, so it’s not quite as stretchy as the pattern recommends, and next time I do that I’ll size up. But it’s still wearable all the same! Working with the FOE was a little fiddly, but not terrible. Just be patient with it and you’ll have a great looking cami too!
