  1. cheralyn (verified owner)

    Great pattern with clear and detailed instructions. I really enjoyed making this cami and think it will be the first of many!

  2. Mary (verified owner)

    Where I live it’s hot and this is the perfect top for me. The straps are farther apart and will work better with my bra. Can’t wait to start this sewing project!

    Easy pattern

  5. Gretchen (verified owner)

    Perfect essential tee!

  6. Natasha Tung (verified owner)

    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!

How to choose 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 for the bust, waist and hip. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.
  5. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the garment. The instructions for lengthening or shortening are included in the pattern.
